Construction is officially underway for i3R, a flexible, state-of-the-art facility that will advance the research prominence of the University of Arkansas. The new building will accommodate up to 30 faculty members and their teams and serve as a research hub, with integrated activities linking it to other research facilities on campus. The Institute is conceptualized around five Innovation Clusters: material science; data science; bioscience and bioengineering research and education in metabolism; food and technology; and integrative systems neuroscience.
Architecturally, the building will serve as a hub between the Institute and the entire campus, with multiple spokes accommodating up to 80 cross-disciplinary researchers. The visually open design will welcome CEOs and industry leaders at a strategic location positioned for future development.
