About The Jackson Laboratory

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

Our more than 1,400 employees:
● conduct genetic research
● provide scientific services and genetic resources to laboratories around the world
● educate students of all ages through courses, internships and other programs

Our work uses the mouse as a research tool. Because the mouse genome is 95 percent identical to the human genome, mice are an effective and efficient model for human diseases.

Along with our research we provide scientific resources, techniques, software and data to scientists around the world. We breed and manage colonies of mice to supply other research institutions and laboratories.

We offer high school internships, pre- and post-doctoral opportunities and other collaborative education programs. We provide in-the-lab workshops as well as courses and conferences given by industry leaders and renowned scientists.
