Advanced laboratories and facilities are essential for the college's pioneering research programs. Explore the college's core facilities below. 


Core Facilities

Chemistry Facilities

There are a number of facilities that support University of Texas at Austin researchers in chemistry. 

Biomedical research facilities

There are a number of facilities that support cellular and molecular biology research and computational biology at The University of Texas at Austin. Mostly housed within the College's Center for Biomedical Research Support, these facilities offer a full range of services in nucleic acid and protein sequencing, peptide synthesis, mass spectrometry, protein purification and analysis, DNA microarrays, x-ray chrystallography, and transgenic - knockout mice. These facilities include:

Imaging Research

The Imaging Research Center is home to a high-field (3 Tesla) MRIt, an image analysis computer suite, test rooms, fully outfitted electronics & machine shops, offices, and a conference/classroom area.

Nanotechnology Core Facilities

The Texas Materials Institute is the new home for what was previously the Center for Nano and Molecular Science and Technology. Facilities include scanning probe microscopy, nano device fabrication and testing, and electronic and vibrational spectroscopy.
