The University of Chicago has announced a new organization that will facilitate the expansion of research collaborations between faculty at UChicago and scientists and scholars at other institutions, including at Argonne, Fermilab and the Marine Biological Laboratory.

The University of Chicago Consortium for Advanced Science and Engineering (UChicago CASE) grants University affiliation to approved scientists and scholars from affiliated institutions in a broad range of scientific and research areas, including biological, computational, physical and social sciences, engineering and public policy.

Currently, UChicago CASE grants University affiliation to approved researchers from Argonne National Laboratory and the Marine Biological Laboratory. It will expand to include researchers from Fermilab by July 1, 2018, and potentially other institutions in the future.

By granting University affiliation to researchers and scholars at partner institutions, UChicago CASE facilitates joint research projects, access to facilities, and engagement with students and postdocs. It is a vital channel through which the University promotes the advancement of scientific work and encourages collaborative research among members of the University faculty and scientists and scholars at our national and affiliated laboratories.

Argonne also announced today a similar program, the Collaborative Argonne Institute for Science and Engineering (CAISE), which make it easier for UChicago researchers to work with Argonne in a joint appointment capacity. For questions about CAISE, please email
