The Advanced Imaging Research Center (AIRC) was created in September 2005 as a collaborative effort between UT Southwestern, UT Dallas and UT Arlington. The goal was to have a well-equipped imaging facility where scientists, engineers & physicians from the three institutions could collaborate on novel imaging methodologies & technologies for the ultimate benefit of patients. The AIRC is housed in the Bill and Rita Clements Advanced Medical Imaging Building on the north campus of UT Southwestern Medical Center adjacent to the Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center.
