The Jackson Laboratory's research institute in Connecticut is transforming medicine by improving care, lowering costs, and increasing life span and health span. Scientists here focus on human genomics, complementing JAX’s mammalian genetics expertise to discover the genomic causes of human disease and develop individualized diagnostics, treatments and cures.
JAX Genomic Medicine sits on a 17-acre site on the campus of the UConn Health Center in Farmington, clinical collaboration with Connecticut’s universities and hospitals. It currently houses over 350 biomedical researchers, technicians and support staff in state-of-the-art computing facilities and laboratories. The 183,500-square-foot facility opened in the fall of 2014.
Members of the public are invited to participate in a guided walking tour of our Farmington campus, where every day our scientists are accelerating discovery in order to find more effective, precise and personalized ways to treat, prevent, and cure human diseases. Dates and spaces are limited, and pre-registration is required.
