The Jackson Laboratory opened the $135 million JAX Genomic Medicine facility in October of 2014 in Farmington, Conn. Located on 17 acres at the University of Connecticut Health Science Center, the four-story, 183,500-sf building features 17 wet labs and 17 dry labs arranged in flexible, collaborative clusters. The facility also provides core service labs, two large conference rooms, offices, a data center, and a 200-seat auditorium. Construction began on the project, which was designed by Tsoi/Kobus Associates and Centerbrook Architects, in early 2013. The 20-year capital and research budget for JAX Genomic Medicine is $1.1 billion.
