UT System Allocates $7.5 Million to Expand STEM Research at UTA

The University of Texas System Board of Regents has allocated $7.5 million from its Permanent University Fund to the development of the Institute for Research Technologies at Arlington—a $25.2 million project that will expand research capabilities and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education across the UT System.

The Institute will encompass three facilities: the existing Shimadzu Center for Advanced Analytical Chemistry, a new Center for Imaging, and a new Center for Environmental, Forensic and Material Analysis.

This endeavor is a collaborative effort between UT Arlington and Shimadzu Scientific Instruments, an international leader in analytical instruments production that made a philanthropic pledge to the establishment last spring and will sell $18.5 million worth of equipment to the new facility.
