At the MagLab, our research pertains to materials, energy and life.

Materials Research

Scientists and engineers are on a quest to make products smaller, faster, smarter and stronger. New materials are at the center of this race: They enable the high-tech products that have changed your life and will continue to change it in ways you cannot yet imagine.

Life Research

Scientists working at the MagLab use powerful magnets to learn more about living structures and investigate disease.

Energy Research

Creating, storing and conserving energy — a product for which there is a limited supply and nearly unlimited demand — has been a topic of global conversations for decades.
