UTARI (The University of Texas at Arlington Research Institute) bridges the gap between academic research and product development in the areas of Advanced Manufacturing, Biomedical Technologies, Robotics, and Energy/Water/Environment and is a major source of research revenue for UT Arlington). We collaborate with UT Arlington faculty to promote undergraduate and graduate education by providing opportunities for exciting and stimulating research and development. We also collaborate with government, industry, and university partners to facilitate early stage product development in our four disciplines. We host symposiums, consortia, and events to bring together our partners to focus on specific issues. We concentrate on developing and maintaining a talented workforce for not just UTARI but for the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. We provide opportunities for our partners by having an interdisciplinary team of engineers working together in a state-of-the-art facility.  Learn more >

Shimadzu Institute

The Shimadzu Institute for Research Technologies builds on the recently established $6.7 million Shimadzu Center for Advanced Analytical Chemistry and the affiliated Shimadzu Distinguished Professorship in Analytical Chemistry at UT Arlington. With $7.5 million from UT System and $11 million from UT Arlington, the complete partnership will total $25.2 million. The Institute will provide UT Arlington, UT System institutions, and the industrial and educational enterprise throughout Texas with a complete suite of state-of-the-art instrumentation, support services, and expertise in one convenient location. The partnership will bring to UT Arlington equipment and software. The holistic and interdisciplinary approach that the Institute for Research Technologies provides is essential to drive leading-edge research and education. Learn more >

North Texas Genome Center

The North Texas Genome Center represents a collaborative venture between multiple universities, medical centers, and corporate partners to establish a center of excellence for genomics and high throughput sequencing. The center is opening to customers in the Spring of 2018, and will eventually transition to UTA’s new 220,000-square-foot Science and Engineering Innovation and Research (SEIR) Building, a world-class research and teaching facility scheduled to open later in 2018.

At the core of the cutting edge center, five Illumina NovaSeq-6000 genome sequencing instruments will facilitate a projected sequencing capacity equivalent to 25,000 human genomes per year.

The center also includes technical and administrative staff, along with multiple instruments that automate the processing of biological samples to facilitate very high throughput capacity at excellent economy and scale.

Together with in house and system-based computational infrastructure, the center is directly linked via high capacity fiber to internet service, which rapidly and efficiently delivers data in real time to customers in a cloud-based computing environment (Illumina BaseSpace), where they may readily download and further analyze their data.
