Description

Jax - Why Mice From Maine Matter To Connecticut Next fall, the Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine is slated to open on the campus of the UConn Health Center in Farmington. Already, scientists are at work on research with the overarching goal of improving medical care by tailoring treatments to individual patients. 
     “Jax,” as it’s known to those who work there, has a storied history in genetics research involving mice, and its leaders see a future in the emerging field known as personalized medicine. Connecticut leaders have a stake in Jackson’s future too, counting on it to help anchor what they hope will become a burgeoning bioscience industry in a state where job growth has languished for decades.
