Texas elected officials and numerous university supporters and faculty joined UTA President Vistasp M. Karbhari to break ground Thursday, Oct. 27 on UTA’s new $125 million Science and Engineering Innovation and Research building, which will be the signature research facility for life and health science research at UTA.
UTA physicists are the first to demonstrate a new potential cancer treatment using microwaves to target deeply situated tumors. The study was the cover article this month in "The Journal of Biomedical Nanotechnology."
Ramon Lopez, UTA physics professor, has been named the winner of the 2016 Richard Carrington Education and Public Outreach Award by the Space and Aeronomy section of the American Geophysical Union.
The AGU’s Carrington Award is presented in recognition of significant impact on students’ and the public’s understanding of science through education and/or outreach activities.
UTA physicists have been awarded a new $1.06 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to upgrade the software that runs on the Titan supercomputer at Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility in Tennessee to support extremely data-heavy scientific applications such as advanced biology and materials science simulations.
UTA physicists are leading a multidisciplinary project with UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas and MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston to develop a new multifunctional platform that can integrate imaging and photo-induced cancer therapy in a single, portable device.
Researchers at UTA and UT Southwestern are collaborating on two projects to improve the accuracy of the delivery of cancer radiation therapies and minimize the exposure of healthy tissues. The projects will employ big data analysis and physics models to improve technologies used to deliver therapy and ultimately improve patient care.
UTA physicists are preparing the Titan supercomputer at Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility in Tennessee to support the analysis of data generated from the quadrillions of proton collisions expected during this season’s Large Hadron Collider particle physics experiments.
