  • Center for Applied Biomechanics

    As the largest university-based injury biomechanics laboratory in the world, the center specializes in impact biomechanics for injury prevention. Started by NHTSA back in 1989, the center now operates out of a 30,000-square-foot facility located in the University of Virginia Research Park.
  • Commonwealth Center for Advanced Logistics Systems (CCALS)

    CCALS is a consortium of industry, government and universities that adapts and transforms advanced logistics systems for market-ready solutions. CCALS engages and benefits its members through applied research and innovation in data analytics, cyber-physical systems, and strategic investments. Contact: Thomas Polmateer.
  • Coulter Center for Translational Research

    All too often, innovations in biomedical engineering that could significantly improve the healthcare of people around the world never enter the marketplace. The University of Virginia has joined forces with the Wallace H. Coulter Foundation in a groundbreaking effort to address the root causes of this bottleneck and commercialize promising treatments and techniques.
    • Early stage funding
    • Translational research management
  • Environmental Resilience Institute

    The Environmental Resilience Institute brings together UVA faculty, students, and external partners to conduct trans-disciplinary research at the intersection of environmental change and human wellbeing. The institute’s overarching goal is to identify solutions to some of society’s most challenging and complex social-environmental problems. UVA Engineering Representatives: Andres F. Clarens and Jonathan L. Goodall.
  • Global Infectious Diseases Institute

    The Institute aims to address three major 21st-century concerns: diarrheal disease in children, pandemic threats and the most resistant and urgent infectious organisms known as superbugs. The institute takes an interdisciplinary approach, from the identification and diagnosis of disease to intervention to evaluation, in order to understand the mechanisms of disease and intervene medically, socially and through policy. UVA Engineering Representatives: Roseanne M. Ford and Jason Papin.
  • Hossack Lab

    Hossack Lab is a group of researchers who study ultrasound and ultrasound contrast agents to advance innovative applications in disease diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring.
  • Link Lab

    Opened in January 2018, the Link Lab at UVA Engineering is a world-class center of excellence in cyber-physical systems. The Lab consists of more than 250 faculty and graduate students from multiple departments and conducts pioneering work in Robotics & Autonomous Vehicles, Smart and Connected Health, Hardware for IoT, and Smart Cities.
  • Naegle Research Lab

    The Naegle Lab seeks to understand the regulation and function of tyrosine phosphorylation in complex networks. We combine systems biology, computation, and experiments to test predict and test the function of tyrosine phosphorylation in proteins and protein networks.
