About Us

IARC is part of Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. At IARC, scientists and engineers from Fermilab, Argonne and Illinois universities work side by side with industrial partners to research and develop breakthroughs in accelerator science and technology and translate them into applications for the nation’s health, wealth and security.

Located on the Fermilab campus, this 83,000 square foot, state-of-the-art building houses offices, technical and educational space to study cutting-edge accelerator technologies. In addition to attracting new private industry partners that will create new high-tech jobs, the center also collaborates with local universities and serves as a training facility for a new generation of scientists, engineers and technical staff in accelerator technology. These partnerships make critical contributions to the technological and economic health of Illinois and place the state in a position to become the world leader in accelerator research, development and industrialization.
