On April 2, the University of Chicago announced a new organization that will facilitate the expansion of research collaborations between faculty at the University of Chicago and scientists and scholars at other institutions, including at Fermilab, Argonne and the Marine Biological Laboratory.
The University of Chicago Consortium for Advanced Science and Engineering (CASE) grants UChicago affiliation to approved scientists and scholars from affiliated institutions in a broad range of scientific and research areas, including particle and astrophysics, engineering, biology, as well as computational and data science.
UChicago CASE will grant affiliation to approved researchers from Fermilab by July 1, and potentially other institutions in the future. Argonne and the Marine Biological Laboratory are already affiliated institutions through UChicago CASE.
By granting UChicago 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.
