Tishman breaks ground for research facility.

Calling it "vital to our intensive recruitment and research effort," The Jackson Laboratory recently broke ground for a new $16.5-million research facility that will enable the Laboratory to dramatically increase the size of its scientific staff.

Tishman Construction Corporation's Boston Office is managing preconstruction and construction of the 49,000-square foot, two-story structure, which will enable the Laboratory to add as many as 15 new scientists during the next four years and establish 16 modern research laboratories. Currently, the non-profit, independent Laboratory has 27 principal investigators.

Founded in 1929, The Jackson Laboratory is internationally known for its basic research in cancer, heart disease, the immune system, aging and a host of other diseases. Funding for the research laboratory will come from a number of sources, including tax-exempt bonds issued through the Maine Health and Higher

Educational Facilities Authority, the National Science Foundation, and a private fund-raising campaign announced by the Laboratory at the groundbreaking ceremony.

The building is scheduled for completion in 1993. In addition to the 15 new scientists, the Laboratory expects to create more than 100 new support jobs. Since the first of the year, four new scientists have already joined the Laboratory's staff.
