My introduction to The Jackson Laboratory came through a Verrill Dana luncheon. What an exciting and enthusiastic group of researchers! I found stimulating scientists who would speak with such enthusiasm about their specialties. Their talks were very enlightening and understandable. Through their depth of knowledge and clarity, these scientists were able to effectively deﬁne the mission of The Jackson Laboratory.
JAX is the foundation of many successes in medicine here and around the world. Cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer's are all diseases that The Jackson Laboratory is looking toward eradicating. I simply cannot think of an organization more deserving of my support now and after my death.
