AFAIK never used in a sentence.

(HolQeD 4.4:11):  An organization dedicated to scholastic pursuits or research is a {yejHaD} "institute" or "institution" or a {yej'an} "society".  The distinction between {yejHaD} and {yej'an} is not clear, though the former is usually -- but not always -- used for larger organizations.

  Qu'Vat Colony was the site of a genetics research facility in the 22nd century where Dr Antaak was attempting to create Klingon Augments under the command of General K'Vagh, the military governor. Fleet Admiral Krell threatened to wipe out the colony after Antaak's team produced a highly contagious fatal viral plague. (ENT "Affliction" & "Divergence")

  "Research is not the Klingon way." (Kirk, TOS "A Private Little War")
