BAR HARBOR — The Jackson Laboratory has promoted Auro Nair to general manager of JAX Mice, Clinical and Research Services.
Nair, who holds a doctorate in chemistry from the University of Oklahoma, joined the laboratory in 2007 as associate general manager of what was then known as JAX Mice and Services. The institution added clinical services to its offerings, and in 2011, Nair was named general manager of JAX Clinical and Research Services, responsible for all clinical and scientific research services provided to internal researchers at The Jackson Laboratory and external researchers worldwide.
With the new promotion, Nair is now also responsible for all mouse production and operations.
“I am humbled and grateful for the opportunity that The Jackson Laboratory has provided me to lead in this effort,” Nair said.
