With the help of its collaborative research clusters, UNT is making strides toward becoming a major research university. In 2008, the university launched the first phase of the research cluster initiative with the goals of advancing research, strengthening the state's economy and developing technology vital to addressing today's most pressing needs. With two years' momentum behind them, these clusters have attracted top faculty and students and continued groundbreaking research. UNT expanded its commitment to the initiative in the fall by investing in four new research teams and five areas of strategic development. Learn more about the clusters' premier researchers and advancements in the Spring 2011 issue of The North Texan.
