The University of Chicago helps lead the country in scientific and technological innovation in part through its management of two U.S. Department of Energy laboratories, Argonne National Laboratory and Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, and the world-renowned Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL). Partnerships among the three labs and UChicago facilitate collaborative research among UChicago faculty and students and lab scientists and engineers—with some faculty holding joint appointments within the labs. These broadened research initiatives are strengthened by combining University and lab intellectual and physical resources, paving the way for greater impact in Illinois, the United States, and across the globe.
