The Jackson Laboratory Center for Precision Genetics: From New Models to Novel Therapeutics

Investigator: Daniel H. Lowenstein, MD

Location(s): United States


Despite recent advances in biomedical technology and methods, the translation of discoveries to useful clinical therapies remains inefficient and difficult. Organisms that model disease, a vital part of the translational process, need to be made more precise and more relevant to human disease mechanisms. The pilot JAX Center for Precision Genetics (JCPG) is a multi-component Center that provides diverse research teams with the support and infrastructure necessary to develop, characterize and refine mouse models for incurable and genetically complex human diseases.
