State-of-the-Art Facilities

The University of Louisville can offer world-class facilities for every stage of your business, whether you're developing your first prototype, researching new technologies or need incubation space.

These facilities include:

  • The Micro/Nano Technology Center, which houses a 10,000-square-foot cleanroom, where we develop smart sensors and other cutting-edge technologies. 
  • The Rapid Prototyping Center, where we have used our deep knowledge of 3-D printing and other advanced manufacturing techniques to perform federally-funded basic and applied research, technology transfer and industry-funded projects for more than 20 years.
  • The UL AMCC, where we offer skills training on advanced equipment for additive manufacturing.
  • Labs for materials characterization and innovation, complete with extruders and other advanced equipment.
  • A supercomputer, nicknamed the Cardinal Research Cluster (CRC), which has a peak speed of more than 25 teraflops.

In downtown Louisville, we also have the Nucleus: Kentucky’s Life Science and Innovation Center, which was built to integrate university resources with those of the region in order to transform the city into a major life science research hub. The Nucleus anchors our J.D. Nichols Campus for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, which includes co-working space, research facilities and training programs that help expedite collaboration and shared expertise among researchers and companies.
