About Us

The University of Chicago has been an international leader in basic and applied science research for more than 100 years. Researchers at the University and its national labs have made breakthroughs that have revolutionized our understanding and changed the world we live in, such as uncovered the link between cancer and genetics, evaluated the impact of social programs on the economy, and developed tools to produce reliably excellent urban schooling.

The Office of Research and National Laboratories works to provide UChicago researchers and scholars with guidance, resources and central administrative support for their pursuit of new knowledge and novel solutions to the world’s most pressing problems. We work to create possibility, enabling our researchers on campus and at our national laboratories to tackle cutting-edge, big picture scientific research and to better scale their scholarship and research discoveries.
