Energy fears. Environmental concerns. Health-related issues. They are among the world’s biggest challenges, and it is no coincidence that The University of Texas at Arlington has established itself as a leader in all three areas.

Exploring solutions to today’s most pressing problems is what drives UT Arlington’s vast research engine. An engine, we might add, that runs on renewable energy.

Breakthroughs in producing sustainable fuels and harvesting power from wind and water sources show promise in fortifying the world’s energy supply. A patented device that stores such power for use during peak periods is among the University’s many research endeavors dedicated to preserving our planet’s resources for future generations. In the medical arena, advancements in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, diabetes, and other diseases offer help for today and hope for tomorrow.

You’ll read about these initiatives and more in this issue of Inquiry. Not only does the magazine have a new name (formerly it was Research), it is now organized thematically to highlight areas of research excellence.
