Past lab members - see a map of where our alumni are now
Alumni and current lab members attending the Jackson Lab Reunion in 2017
For more than 25 years, the Jackson lab has provided an interactive, cooperative and stimulating research environment that nurtures independent thinking. The Jackson group serves as an excellent platform for personal and professional development. Past trainees include 27 alumni who are now academic group leaders/senior group leaders and 15 who are in senior positions in biotech/pharma companies or other organisations.
As can be seen from the map, our alumni are carrying out ground-breaking science around the globe at universities and research institutes including the Crick Institute, London Research Institute, Institut Curie, Universities of Cambridge, Oxford, Bristol, Manchester, Dundee, Stanford, Yale, Indiana, Montreal, Seville, Milan, Texas at Austin, and Ritsumeikan, Japan; and pharma and drug discovery companies including AstraZeneca, Novartis, Roche, Mission Therapeutics, Artios Pharma and AbCam. Other alumni have forged careers in other diverse areas including journalism, patent law, medicine and marketing to name a few.
Furthermore, lab alumni have been recognised internationally for their achievements and include recipients of the Colworth Medal, EMBO Young Investigator Award, Young Investigator Prize for Excellence in Cancer Research, the Hooke Medal, the CNRS Bronze award, and one former postdoc was recently awarded an honorary OBE.
