Jackson Lab: Jackson Lab Opens To Big Hopes For Bioscience Growth – Hartford Courant

Saturday, October 11th, 2014


The facility is funded in part by $291 million from the state through a legislative act passed three years ago, largely along party lines. In general, Democrats backed the plan by Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s administration, and Republicans said it was too much money in exchange for 300 jobs over the course of a decade.

About 150 people work at the Farmington location, most of them hired in the past 16 to 18 months,said Charles Lee, director of the Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine.

Last week, as Lee arrived by plane in Seoul, Korea, to check on a collaborative research project there, he was greeted at the airport by media reporting on a recent announcement that Lee is a 2014 Thomson Reuters Citation Laureate, meaning that he is a strong contender this year for a Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine. Nobel winners will be announced Oct. 6.

The lab is headquartered in Bar Harbor, Maine, and it has another location in Sacramento, Calif. All told, the laboratory has an annual budget of $262.4 million for fiscal year 2014 and employs more than 1,500 people, mostly in Maine.

Much of its revenue — $165.3 million — comes from the JAX Mice & Clinical Research Services through its sale of mice to other researchers. Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor ships more than 3 million mice annually to researchers around the globe, Lee said.

The lab also received $69.6 million in public support, including grants and contracts in fiscal year 2014. The rest of its budget is funded by contributions and other sources.

In 10 years or so, the Farmington facility could become a $70 million-to-$75 million operation, said Mike Hyde, a spokesman for The Jackson Laboratory.

Jackson is partnering with various Connecticut hospitals and universities, too. Lee has reached out to researchers at Quinnipiac, Wesleyan and Yale.

“I already have a collaboration that’s funded by the NIH with Mark Gerstein, a full professor at Yale University,” Lee said. “I’m developing ties with Rick Lifton, who is the head of genetics at Yale.”

Perhaps the closest academic relationship, in proximity and in collaboration, is between Jackson and both the UConn Health Center and UConn School of Medicine.
