A world where where cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s — many of the conditions that undermine human health — are understood and can be stopped.
At The Jackson Laboratory (JAX), it applies passion, innovation and ever-increasing precision to make this vision a reality. It is accelerating disruptive scientific breakthroughs tailored to the needs of individual patients and closing in on the genetic and molecular courses of disease. It also educates current and future scientists and empower the global biomedical community by providing critical resources, data, tools and services.
JAX has a mammalian genetics headquarters in Bar Harbor, Maine; a facility in Sacramento, Calif.; and a new genomic medicine facility in Farmington, Conn. that is enabling the Laboratory to translate its fundamental science into the clinic. In addition to its National Cancer Institute-designated Cancer Center, the Laboratory also has initiated a cancer research laboratory in Seoul, Korea.
