For Corporations

For nearly 100 years, The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) has led the world in research using the mouse to understand human disease and in studying the biology of human diseases at the mouse-human interface. JAX is renowned as the world-wide epicenter of research, training, and education using the mouse as a model organism. JAX investigators pioneered the application of mice to study the genetic mechanisms of human biology and diseases, and its mice and research programs have contributed to important medical breakthroughs for nearly 100 years. The Bar Harbor campus maintains over 13,000 strains and stocks of mice for distribution, including advanced mouse populations developed at JAX that model human genetic variability, and is home to the most powerful public database resources available for exploring the genetic and phenotypic complexity of mice. These resources empower researchers across the globe. JAX professor George Snell, PhD, won the 1980 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, and three graduates of JAX’s prestigious Summer Student Program went on to win a Nobel. To date, 26 Nobel Prizes are associated with JAX research, education programs, and resources.
