A new home for builders, creators, and visionaries.

EDGE Labs features wet labs and equipment necessary for new businesses requiring state-of-the-art laboratory space. EDGE Labs also provides technical infrastructure that helps UA faculty, researchers, and students develop and test processes and prototypes that can be translated into products for the marketplace.

EDGE Labs is closely interconnected with The EDGE, the co-working and collaboration space resulting from a partnership with UA, the City of Tuscaloosa, and the Chamber of Commerce of West Alabama.

The facility, which is located on the north end of The University of Alabama campus, near the Ferguson Student Center, is part of UA’s push to support regional entrepreneurship and economic development.
