The Jackson Laboratory: Forum for Discovery 2020, with a tribute to Dr. Kenneth Paigen
By David Shaw
As chair emeritus of the Jackson Laboratory (JAX), with a relationship extending more than 30 years, I was honored to join the July 2020 Forum for Discovery. The Forum provided a welcome opportunity to learn about pioneering research in genomics, AND to offer a heartfelt tribute to the late Dr. Kenneth Paigen who served as CEO of JAX during my term as chair of the laboratory’s board of trustees.
My tribute to Ken Paigen can be found in this wonderful recording of the Forum for Discovery which includes discussion of the Lab’s cutting-edge work on COVID-19, cancer therapies and other important life science programs to improve human health and wellbeing.
For those wishing to go directly to the tribute to Dr. Paigen, it can be found at 17:38 in the Forum recording or can be viewed here:
