Governor Dannel P. Malloy joined The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) President and CEO Dr. Edison Liu, Lt. Governor Nancy Wyman, UConn President Susan Herbst, and national scientific leaders October 7 in Farmington to celebrate the official opening of JAX’s new nonprofit research institute for Genomic Medicine.

“We invested in Bioscience Connecticut because we knew this emerging industry would pay immediate and long-term dividends for our state by positioning us as a global leader in personalized medicine and innovative research,” Governor Malloy said.

“There are going to be scientists and investments from outside the state that are going to be coming in as a result of programs at the lab,” Dr. Susan Froshauer, president and CEO of CURE, told Fox CT News. “We’re going to see a huge multiplier.”
