Research

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.

Liping Tang

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.

Taming traffic

Civil engineering Professor Sia Ardekani and his team are determined to unclog North Texas roadways by merging voluminous amounts of data into high-tech transit information systems.

Victoria Farrar-Myers

Professor named Fulbright Distinguished Chair in Australia

Farrar-Myers will conduct research on foreign policymaking with emphasis on the Pacific Rim, take part in graduate and undergraduate seminars, and deliver public lectures.
