The focus of the lab will be personalized medicine and systems genomics research and will cover 173,500 square feet with plans for expansion. Jackson Lab will provide $809 million for the space (through federal grants, service income and philanthropy), and the state of Connecticut will contribute $291 million to that as part of the state’s new “Bioscience Connecticut” initiative.

The National Institutes of Health has also awarded The Jackson Lab $58.1 million in two separate awards to aid in some of their innovative future projects.
