85 years advancing science and improving health through our commitment to education

Research Edu ProgramsCliniciansStudents & TeachersPre & Postdocs

We ignite the passion of future scientists, advance careers, and inform the general public about the unfolding promise of genetics and genomics. From high school summer programs to conferences that further the education of practicing scientists and professionals, we advance science and improve health through our commitment to education.

Courses and Conferences deliver educational programs in Bar Harbor, Maine, Farmington Connecticut and across the globe.

We empower healthcare professionals to integrate genomics into their clinical practice, working with clinicians, hospitals, health systems, and training programs to develop education programs that address specific knowledge gaps or barriers. We develop online programs and resources, in-person interactive workshops, and blended learning opportunities for diverse healthcare providers.

JAX's programs for high school and undergraduate students and teachers predate the founding of the Jackson Laboratory by six years. Including our flagship Summer Student Program, JAX offers opportunities for academic year research, teacher professional development, and the Maine State Science Fair.

Exceptional opportunities for PhD and postdoctoral research and training in a unique scientific environment.
