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 and related areas. 

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 Vice President for Research's Center for Biomedical Research Support, these facilities offer a full range of services in cryo-EM, nucleic acid and protein sequencing, peptide synthesis, mass spectrometry, protein purification and analysis, DNA microarrays, x-ray crystallography, and transgenic - knockout mice. These facilities include:

Research Greenhouse

The NHB Research Greenhouse, located on the roof of the Norman Hackerman Building (NHB), provides large greenhouse rooms as well as walk-in and reach-in growth chambers for plant researchers across the university.

Nanotechnology Core Facilities

The Texas Materials Institute is the 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.
