The Genomic Education team at The Jackson Laboratory is committed to creating diverse and inclusive educational programs where all students, employees and visitors feel valued and are empowered to participate in our mission to improve human health though genomics research, scientific resources and education. We believe human diversity is an essential ingredient for empowering the global biomedical community, and therefore our programs should reflect, embrace and celebrate the diversity of our world ... JAX's programs for high school and undergraduate students and teachers predate the founding of the Jackson Laboratory by six years. Including our flagship Summer Student Program, JAX offers opportunities for academic year research, teacher professional development, and the Maine State Science Fair.
Courses are designed to impart knowledge through intensive lectures, hands-on training and informal interactions. Workshops offer extensive hands-on training, teaching participants how to perform specific techniques, interspersed with lectures or seminars.
