Facilities for Translational Research

Facilities at the University of Louisville that may be helpful to innovators looking to develop or commercialize a new product.

The University of Louisville has a wealth of facilities for every stage of 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.
  • iHub co-working space, with free wi-fi, free parking, print-copy-scan-fax services, private meeting rooms, audiovisual equipment with large projector screen for presentations and educational events and mail services 

In downtown Louisville, you'll find 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.
