Research Centers

Advanced Imaging Research Center
The 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 Center for Space Sciences 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.
