The Jackson Laboratory Charity Profile
We are an independent, nonprofit organization focusing on mammalian genetics research to advance 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.
