Progress with Purpose

Researchers at UT Arlington are at the forefront of discovery. They battle cancer using targeted drugs, devise novel methods of generating clean energy, and detect brain tumors with painless imaging techniques. Yet these projects barely scratch the surface of the University's burgeoning research enterprise.

In the last five years, research expenditures have increased more than 50 percent. With an emphasis on pursuing creative solutions to real-world problems, UT Arlington ranks among the state's leaders in for-profit industry-sponsored research. This commitment to entrepreneurship and commercialization helps transform ideas into relevant products that enhance lives and promote economic growth.
