The UTA Research Institute: Discovery, Development and Technology Commercialization
Michael McCabe, Ph.D.
Executive Director, UTARI
University of Texas at Arlington
You're a professor, research scientist, or a creative student who has an idea about a new, potentially revolutionary process or product. Where do you go from here? To UTA's Research Institute, whose purpose is to bridge the gap between academic research and product development by offering facilities and assistance to UT Arlington researchers wanting to fully develop their discoveries into products that have commercial potential. How does UTARI do that? With a topnotch staff who can apply science and engineering principles to solve technical challenges; seek sponsored research funding from industry and government; understand what cost, schedule, and quality deliverables mean; and work hard to produce results.
In this presentation, Dr. McCabe describes how UTARI supports inventors by having an interdisciplinary team of engineers working together in a state-of-the-art facility to link discovery, development and commercialization in order to achieve new products, new companies and economic impact for our region, state and nation.
Michael McCabe earned a B.S. in chemistry from Capital University in Columbus, Ohio, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Organic Chemistry from the University of Cincinnati. He also holds an MBA from the University of Cincinnati. In 2002, he was named a Fellow in the Society for the Advancement of Materials and Process Engineering (SAMPE). Prior to joining UTA, Dr. McCabe was Vice President for Research and Executive Director of the Research Institute at the University of Dayton. While there, the University of Dayton and its Research Institute became a regional leader in technology-based economic development and a national leader in materials research. His experience also includes directing the development and application of advanced composite materials for all jet engine composite components at GE Aviation in Cincinnati.
