SEIR Building


Coming 2018

Advancing Health and the Human Condition

The state-of-the-art teaching and research space will advance health-science discoveries and society's understanding of today's most pressing health issues. SEIR promotes an interdisciplinary approach to research built around engineering, science, nursing, kinesiology, and public health.

Focus Areas

A Leader in Health-Science Research

Fostering Collaboration

12 Research Lab Neighborhoods

SEIR is divided into research neighborhoods, which brings together teams from a wide range of disciplines to work in close proximity, allowing for a more free exchange of ideas. Instead of disparate labs across campus, these neighborhoods are large, multidisciplinary spaces where researchers can collaborate to create novel approaches for addressing the pressing issues affecting the life and health sciences.

A Game-Changing Opportunity

The North Texas Genome Center

As the only facility of its kind in the UT System and in North Texas, the SEIR-housed North Texas Genome Center (NTGC) will be a key research hub and offer whole genome sequencing and data interpretation on a fee-for-services basis. It represents a game-changing opportunity for UTA to benefit the region, state, and nation by establishing itself as a worldwide leader in precision health and big data.
