The Research Innovation Center (RIC) is located in the Judson Harper Research Complex on the University's Foothills Campus off of Rampart Road, just west of Overland Trail.
The center opened in April 2010 and will provide a hub for University scientists and students to partner with businesses to develop new products to treat and diagnose infectious diseases.
The center will support research efforts of the University's Infectious Disease Supercluster
and technology transfer through MicroRx, the non-profit arm of the Supercluster devoted to helping research discoveries become products in the marketplace. The facility was built to standards that allow scientists to produce vaccines and therapies against infectious diseases for human clinical studies.
