Jackson Laboratory faculty investigate the basic processes that take us from fertilized egg to functional being, which also hold key information about how our genes function.
Janeway Distinguished Chair and Professor of Mammalian Genetics
This resource provides mouse models for facial, dental, eye, ear and skull development research, as well as mouse models of human craniofacial syndromes.
Scientific Director and Professor, The Jackson Laboratory for Mammalian Genetics, the Maxine Groffsky Endowed Chair
Steven Munger, Ph.D., uses a systems genetics approach and advanced computational methods to study development and complex disease in advanced mouse populations.
Global leader in the use of targeted mutagenesis in mice to investigate muscle development, disease and repair.
Mice harboring spontaneous mutations have long been a major source for animal models of human genetic disorders, particularly mendelian diseases. The Mouse Mutant Resource maintains over 700 established mutant strains.
