Coming Soon: 900 square feet of wet lab space

For startup companies moving UT intellectual property forward, we are planning to offer approximately 900 square feet of wet lab space at UT’s J.J. Pickle Research Campus in North Austin, equipped with fume hoods, lab benches, chemical storage and a glove box to support chemical and material science technology development. We will be able to support four to five startup companies, but companies must have an option or a license with UT Austin to use the space.
