Of Mice and Money: Jackson Lab Draws Major Funding for Mouse Research, How Much is Enough?
The Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor employed 1441 people and generated $202 million in operating revenue in 2015. Breeding mice for use in laboratories and providing research services accounts for two-thirds of its operating revenue, however it has also received $80 million in research grant money. Funding for research is a constant need. Some research projects being undertaken at the lab are featured, as well as a text box that gives the grant funding source, use and amount. Nineteen research projects were awarded grant money in the first through third quarter of 2016. How Jackson Lab has grown since 2002 and the possibility of collaborating with the other two research labs in the area, MDI Biological Lab and College of the Atlantic, are examined. [images]
