The University of Chicago

One of the world's premier academic and research institutions, the University of Chicago has driven new ways of thinking since our 1890 founding. Today, UChicago is an intellectual destination that draws inspired scholars to our Hyde Park and international campuses, keeping UChicago at the nexus of ideas that challenge and change the world.

A new study from the University of Chicago has laid out the internal structure of polyelectrolyte complexes for the first time which lead to better drugs and technology.
A team has announced the first evidence for “quantum superchemistry” – a phenomenon where particles in the same quantum state undergo collective accelerated reactions. The effect had been predicted, but never observed in the laboratory.
A team of researchers has devised a pathway for the mass manufacture of sensors able to simultaneously detect contaminants like lead, mercury and E. coli in flowing tap water.
For the first time in nearly three decades of observations, clouds seen on Neptune have all but vanished. A UC Berkeley-led team of astronomers discovered the abundance of clouds normally seen at the icy giant’s mid-latitudes started to fade in 2019.
A team of researchers has found that a sheet of glass crystal just a few atoms thick could trap and carry light.
A team of University of Chicago scientists led by chemist Weixin Tang has created new CRISPR systems that are smaller and can easily slip into cells—yet retain their potency.
Researchers at the University of Chicago have designed a material which can bend in half or stretch to more than twice its original length while still functioning as an OLED display.
Researchers have designed a chameleon-like building material that changes its infrared color and how much heat it absorbs or emits based on the outside temperature.
A team of researchers have developed a new device to extract water from air.
