Researchers protect the world's water systems

UT Arlington scientists and engineers are making water safer by developing methods to analyze its quality, monitor biological toxins, and protect oceans against climate change.

Linda Perrotti in the laboratory

Professor explores gender differences in drug abuse

According to a national survey, 4.1 million Americans sought treatment for drug addiction in 2010. Using cellular, molecular, and behavioral procedures, Linda Perrotti is exploring why some people become addicts while others don't.

Novel system shows promise in detecting and treating cancer

Wayward cancer cells often cause tumors elsewhere in the body. Bioengineering Professor Liping Tang is creating a bone marrow-mimicking trap to attract these cells and confine them to a single location.

Richard and Nelson Claytor

Gift from Fresnel Technologies supports optics research

UT Arlington's capacity to explore the growing field of optics is expanding. A $500,000 endowment established through a gift from Nelson Claytor creates a distinguished professorship in honor of his father, Richard Claytor.

Smart Grid

National Science Foundation grant funds smart grid technology

As energy demand rises, the electrical grid in the United States is steadily pushed to its limits. Electrical engineering Professor Qilian Liang is developing a digitally enabled smart grid to help ease that burden.
