The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine
Discovering precise genomic solutions for disease
The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) has built a new nonprofit research institute on a 17 acre site in Farmington, Connecticut that will transform medicine by improving care, lowering costs, and increasing life span and health span. Construction of the 183,500 square-foot facility is complete, and within 10 years, it will house 300 biomedical researchers, technicians and support staff in state-of-the-art computing facilities and laboratories.
The CT Green Building Council has an outstanding opportunity to host its members and supporters as they enjoy a presentation and tour at the new JAX facility on Thursday, January 15, 2015 at 5:00PM. Members of the JAX project design team will be on hand to present on the new lighting technologies as well cutting edge green building innovations. CTGBC thanks The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company for co-hosting this exciting event to kick off the new year. Save the date, January 15, 2015, and join us in Farmington !
