JAX Scientists

The Genomic Education team at The Jackson Laboratory is committed to creating diverse and inclusive educational programs where all students, employees and visitors feel valued and are empowered to participate in our mission to improve human health though genomics research, scientific resources and education. We believe human diversity is an essential ingredient for empowering the global biomedical community, and therefore our programs should reflect, embrace and celebrate the diversity of our world.

Researcher 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.

We deliver educational programs in Bar Harbor, ME, Farmington, CT 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.
