The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Argonne National Laboratory, a multidisciplinary science and engineering research center, where talented scientists and engineers work together to answer the biggest questions facing humanity.
Argonne’s research program spans 16 research divisions, 12 centers, and five national user facilities. This rich scientific environment provides Argonne researchers – and those who visit from all parts of the globe – with an extraordinary range of cutting-edge facilities and scientific tools that support in-depth research, drive technological breakthroughs, and improve our nation’s competitiveness and quality of life.
Delivering world-class research safely
The University of Chicago has managed and operated the laboratory, until 2005, at which time the University's wholly owned affiliate, UChicago Argonne LLC, took on these responsibilities, guiding the lab to its present position as a scientific leader for DOE and the country. Achievements and honors earned by Argonne researchers include three Nobel Prizes, more than 130 R&D 100 awards, thousands of patents, and national and international honors.
