National Council

At The Jackson Laboratory, we are deeply engaged in research and are passionate about the promise it holds for improving health for future generations.

National Council leadership donors contribute 90 percent of the total amount raised in annual, current use gifts — over $2 million last year. These gifts support the entire mission of JAX, including the research of nearly 300 Ph.D.s and M.D.s across 50 labs, and accelerate progress in areas including disease-specific research, recruitment of world-class faculty, and educational programs for emerging scientists. 

National Council members are the Laboratory’s most committed supporters, joining forces to accelerate discovery in the search for tomorrow’s cures.
All members of the National Council are invited to regional gatherings to learn about new discoveries and current research.

You can participate in this vital effort as a member of The National Council. Join today!
