The James L. Sorenson Molecular Biotechnology Building or USTAR (Utah Science Technology and Research) represents the University of Utah’s commitment to ensuring innovation and technology developments are as robust over the next 30 years as they were in the previous half-century. The James L. Sorenson Building was constructed under the state USTAR initiative to provide research space for premier investigators to develop products and business start-ups to enhance Utah’s economic base. The project contributes to education on campus as the principal investigators also teach, and the labs provide employment and research opportunities for graduate students. The building was funded through a partnership of state, university, and private funds, including generous donors such as the Sorenson Foundation, Jon Huntsman, Dinesh Patel, and Micron.
