About Us

The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) is an independent, nonprofit biomedical research institution with more than 2,300 employees.

Its mission is to discover precise genomic solutions for disease and empower the global biomedical community in the shared quest to improve human health.

Outdoor activities are plentiful: Boating, white water rafting, and riding the scenic bicycle trails are popular.
