Advanced Imaging Research Center

The Advanced Imaging Research Center (AIRC) is a collaborative effort with UT Southwestern and other institutions in North Texas to further the efforts of imaging and translational research. Imaging equipment is managed by the AIRC and located within specially designed magnet bays.
The AIRC also houses a chemistry lab for development of imaging agents used to visualize cellular functions and assist researchers in their studies of: liver function, diabetes, functional brain images, cancer, and cardiac conditions.

Center for Lithospheric Studies

The Center for Lithospheric Studies is a research institution devoted to the study of the lithosphere through geophysical and geochemical means. The center operates in close cooperation with the Department of Geosciences at The University of Texas at Dallas.

Alan G. MacDiarmid NanoTech Institute

The Alan G. MacDiarmid NanoTech Institute seeks to eliminate the boundaries that interfere with the transition from science to technology, and from technology to product, on the nanoscale.

A major focus of the institute is NanoEnergetics which will help generate game-changing technologies for energy harvesting, storage, transmission and conversion, leading to new products, companies and job opportunities.

William B. Hanson Center for Space Studies

The William B. Hanson Center for Space Studies advances the understanding of the evolution of solar system bodies by being involved in the design, construction and flight of space plasma sensors for spacecraft and rockets, the development of software and analysis tools for data interpretation, and the advancement of numerical models of the solar terrestrial environment.
