Researchers

Supporting World-Class Research in Utah

At its inception, USTAR recruited principal researchers to the two state research universities, the University of Utah and Utah State University. These researchers and their teams developed ideas and technologies, primarily with federal funding, to increase the economic impact of the universities and to act as a source of new inputs critical for the innovation ecosystem. As the technologies develop, they are licensed or spun out into companies, creating jobs. The USTAR principal researchers are aligned with important industry clusters in the state that include: energy, life sciences, micro/nano systems, and big data. USTAR attracted these researchers from top research institutions including MIT, Harvard, UCLA, and Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
