The Sensor Lab is a part of a UArizona Health Sciences strategic initiative to open new frontiers for better health. The lab serves as a hub to encourage creativity and innovation in research and education by providing access to sensor technology and expertise. Open to researchers and students across the university, the Sensor Lab offers advanced sensor systems and development platforms, as well as reconfigurable testing spaces and expertise in data collection and analysis.

“There was a real need for this resource not only at Health Sciences, but really across the entire University of Arizona campus,” said Gustavo de Oliveira Almeida, PhD, coordinator in the Sensor Lab. “We have a space that brings interdisciplinary investigators together, and we are going to be able to put state-of-the-art technology in more people's hands.”

The Sensor Lab will host a grand opening for faculty and staff on Tuesday, March 22, from 4 to 6 p.m.
