Argonne National Laboratory

Integrating research in the computing sciences, the environmental sciences, and the life sciences.
  • The Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) provides researchers from national laboratories, academia, and industry with access to high performance computing capabilities – some of the most powerful in the world – to conduct breakthrough science and engineering research.
  • The Biosciences Division conducts multidisciplinary basic research to understand biological mechanisms relevant to energy production, climate change, bioremediation, and the protection of human health. An international leader in structural biology, the Biosciences Division focuses on proteomics, protein production and characterization, as well as terrestrial carbon cycle and subsurface science.
  • The Environmental Science Division is a national leader in large-scale environmental impacts analysis, ecological and human health risk analysis, geographical information systems, and atmospheric science and climate data assimilation. EVS manages the U.S. DOE’s Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Southern Great Plains site and its ARM Mobile Facility-2.
  • The Mathematics and Computer Science Division is a leader in the computing sciences, performing fundamental research and developing software technologies for solving some of our nation’s most critical scientific problems. The division’s world-class research includes exciting initiatives in four key areas: extreme computing, data-intensive science, applied mathematics, and science and engineering applications.
