Argonne National Lab and U Chicago Partner in Molecular Research

Posted by BCI Staff on Mon, Mar 21, 2011



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.
