Idea >>> Innovation >>> Impact   The Collaboratory @ APL-UW  

The Laboratory works with UW’s CoMotion (formerly the Center for Commercialization — C4C) to bring our entrepreneurial researchers together with industry and to accelerate and broaden the impact of their innovations.

The Collaboratory, housed at 909 Boat St., fosters research and engineering collaborations between academia and industry. By bringing together a critical mass of expertise and resources, the Collaboratory supports a synergistic ecosystem for marine technology research and development. While advancing R+D programs, these partnerships are spurring economic growth in Washington State and across the nation.

Six Decades of Acoustics Research at APL-UW

A presentation by Kevin Williams at the Acoustical Society of America meeting in Pittsburgh, PA, May 2015.

Since 1943, APL-UW has conducted acoustic and oceanographic studies in how deep ocean variability affects Navy systems. Today, our scientists and engineers pursue leadership roles in acoustic and remote sensing, ocean physics and engineering, medical and industrial ultrasound, polar science and logistics, environmental and information systems, and electronic and photonic systems.

APL-UW research is conducted in four campus buildings: the original Henderson Hall, the (Old) Oceanography Building, the Portage Bay Building, and the Benjamin Hall Interdisciplinary Research Building. Executive and business functions are located at 909 Boat Street. Our research vessels are piered on Lake Union.

Research at APL-UW is funded by grants and contracts, primarily with government federal agencies such as the U.S. Navy, NSF, NASA, NIH, and DARPA.

APL-UW receives no support from the state of Washington. The Laboratory relies on private gifts for new faculty positions, new buildings, student fellowships, seed funding for new research projects, endowments, matching funds to secure federal research grants, educational outreach to schools, undergraduate mentorships, and new programs.

You can make gifts to the APL-UW Institute, the Laboratory's Joseph P. Henderson Endowment Fund, the APL-UW Discretionary Account, or make a Life Income Gift.
