The Jackson Laboratory Cancer Center
From its beginning in 1929 as one of the first centers for the study of cancer genetics, The Jackson Laboratory has grown to become a leader in mammalian genetics research and education, and a major provider of genetic resources to the scientific community. First designated a Cancer Center in 1983 by the National Cancer Institute, the independent, non-profit Laboratory is a key player in the molecular genetics revolution that continues to transform cancer research.
All cancer research at The Jackson Laboratory Cancer Center uses the power of mouse genetics and genomics to understand fundamental aspects of human cancer. The Jackson Laboratory Cancer Center has one program, Modeling Cancer: Stem Cells to Therapy.
