Among the researchers highlighted is Shirley Meng, professor of molecular engineering at the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering. Meng also serves as the chief scientist of the Argonne Collaborative Center for Energy Storage Science (ACCESS) at Argonne National Laboratory.

UChicago, through its wholly-owned affiliate, UChicago Argonne LLC, has been the prime contractor for Argonne since the lab’s founding in 1946.

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory is recognized as a global leader in energy storage research. The lab’s cutting-edge science has enabled electric vehicles to travel farther, electronic devices to last longer, and renewable energy to be integrated into the nation’s electric grid.
