Intestinal bacteria from healthy infants prevent food allergy

New research from the University shows that healthy infants have intestinal bacteria that prevent the development of food allergies.

Dark Energy Survey completes six-year mission

Scientists’ effort to map a portion of the sky in unprecedented detail is coming to an end, but their work to learn more about the expansion of the universe has just begun.

Key advances in scientific research and innovation in 2018

Check out this year’s discoveries, developments and advances, which uncovered new knowledge and informed fields of research.

Creating Capacity

UChicago researchers and scholars transform the way we see the world. The Office of Research and National Laboratories provides comprehensive support, guidance and resources to help our researchers advance their work, including connections to world-leading researchers and facilities at Argonne National Laboratory, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, the Marine Biological Laboratory and the Giant Magellan Telescope project.

Identifying lower-energy neutrinos with a liquid-argon particle detector

An experiment at Fermilab has made a significant advance in the detection of neutrinos that hide themselves at lower energies. The ArgoNeuT experiment recently demonstrated for the first time that a particular class of particle detector — those that use liquid argon — can identify signals in an energy range that particle physicists call the “MeV range.”

Scientists move quantum optic networks a step closer to reality

Researchers at Argonne, UChicago and Northwestern have moved quantum optic networks a step closer to reality. The ability to precisely control the interactions of light and matter at the nanoscale could help such a network transmit larger amounts of data more quickly and securely than an electrical network. 

Key advances in scientific research and innovation in 2018

In 2018, we saw the launch of a named probe into the sun, the growth of a quantum technology hub, the critical first particle tracks in a new detector, discovered genes that may aid spinal cord healing, uncovered ways to boost achievement in math performance, produced a battery that runs on air, developed a technique to create atomically-thin fabrics, and more.
