The University of Chicago is receiving $100 million from Craig Duchossois, his wife, and Janet Duchossois and The Duchossois Family Foundation. The funding will be used to establish a new life science institute that will focus on the development of a “new science of wellness.” As the name indicates, The Duchossois Family Institute: Harnessing the Microbiome and Immunity for Human Health, will work to accelerate research and interventions based on how the human immune system, microbiome and genetics interact to maintain health.Read More

There are numerous different types of cancers that affect people around the world. According to the National Cancer Institute, national expenditures for cancer research could exceed $156 billion by 2020, making it one of the most expensive, well-funded research topics around the world. The University of Chicago is one of the many institutions committed to cancer research, with a Comprehensive Cancer Center housing more than 210 researchers and clinicians.Read More
Researchers at the University of Chicago have developed a new spectroscopy method that has the potential to help scientists better understand certain molecular processes, ultimately helping them create future treatments for different viruses.Read More
Argonne National Lab and the University of Chicago are pooling their resources with the establishment of UC's new Institute for Molecular Engineering. Researchers at the Institute will explore ways of fabricating and manipulating nanoscale structures to develop new technologies. The germination of the Institute comes from years of molecular research in the basic sciences, both physical and biological, and the desire to craft solutions to real world problems from those scientific insights. The new partnership will benefit not only from the resources of both the National Lab and the University of Chicago, but from the interdisciplinary nature of the Institute's approach to scientific problems.
