Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering researchers advance innovations in energy storage

Researchers at the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering (PME) at the University of Chicago, and partners across campus, are advancing innovations in every discipline. These scientists and engineers are leading the development of cutting-edge technologies and conducting field-defining research for the betterment of humankind.

The Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation compiled five researchers to know and seven novel technologies available for licensing in energy storage.

Among the researchers highlighted is Shirley Meng, professor of molecular engineering at Pritzker 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.
