The University of Connecticut, including UConn Health, and The Jackson Laboratory for Genomic Medicine (JAX) have signed an agreement to launch a joint Single Cell Genomics Center.

“The ability to analyze a single cell at high resolution is bringing unprecedented precision to biomedical research,” says JAX Genomic Medicine Scientific Director and Professor Charles Lee. “This new center is not only one of the first in the world dedicated to single cell genomics, but also represents the first JAX-UConn cooperative facility.”
