University of Chicago Dedicates New Research Center

Formally dedicated on Oct. 29, 2015, on the University of Chicago’s main campus south of downtown, the 277,000-sq.-ft. William Eckhardt Research Center provides a sophisticated, beautiful home to support the university’s world-renowned programs in molecular engineering and astrophysics.

The diversity of research that takes place in this building extends from the smallest scale possible to the largest imaginable, ranging from molecular manipulation to increasing our understanding of the universe. Conducting research in this building are world-leading research teams working across disciplines in the fields of chemical, electrical, mechanical and biological engineering as well as the traditional materials and physical sciences. It is a nexus for transformative, interdisciplinary discovery.
