The Jacks Lab is interested in the genetic events contributing to the development of cancer. The focus of our research has been a series of mouse strains engineered to carry mutations in genes known to be involved in human cancer. more >>
Tyler Jacks is a Daniel K. Ludwig Scholar and David H. Koch Professor of Biology at MIT. Our studies are supported by a mixture of various sources including the National Institutes of Health, Ludwig Fund for Cancer Research, Lustgarten Foundation, J&J and Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research.
The Jacks Lab values diversity and inclusion and encourages highly talented and motivated individuals of all ethnic backgrounds, gender identities, sexual orientations and disabilities to join us in pushing the boundaries in what we can achieve in cancer research. In partnership with the MIT community, we want to create and maintain a supportive lab environment to enable both the physical and mental well-being of all lab members and to allow everyone to reach their full potential.
