From CERN, Oct. 5, 2018: Lederman's career spanned more than 60 years and brought him to universities and laboratories all over the world, including time at CERN as a visiting scientist.
What we do
Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment
Fermilab hosts DUNE and the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility, being built by scientists and engineers from more than 30 countries.
Fermilab explores the universe at the smallest and largest scales, studying the fundamental particles and forces that govern our universe.
Accelerator science and technology
Fermilab designs, builds and operates powerful accelerators to investigate nature's building blocks, advancing technology for science and society.
Fermilab scientists to look for dark matter using quantum technology
Their efforts apply research from multiple disciplines to hunt for dark matter — in particular, the much sought-after axion.
Studying the stars with machine learning
To keep up with an impending astronomical increase in data about our universe, astrophysicists turn to machine learning.
DOE seeks public input on environmental assessment of accelerator project at Fermilab
The U.S. Department of Energy invites citizens to review and comment on the possible environmental effects of building and operating the Proton Improvement Plan II (PIP-II) particle accelerator at Fermilab.
One minute with Mario Lucero, diversity and inclusion specialist
Attendance at an outreach event led to a career at Fermilab, a place Lucero describes as a "little wonderful world."

Leon Lederman, Nobel laureate, former laboratory director and passionate advocate of science education, dies at age 96
Leon Lederman, a trail-blazing researcher with a passion for science education who served as Fermilab's director from 1978 to 1989 and won the Nobel Prize for discovery of the muon neutrino, died peacefully on Oct. 3 in Rexburg, Idaho. He was 96.
In The Media
From the Pittsburgh Computing Center, Oct. 10, 2018: Fermilab's Dirk Hufnagel is quoted in this piece on the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center now supplying computation for the LHC. Fermilab scientists working on the CMS experiment, in collaboration with the Open Science Grid, have begun analyzing data LHC data using PSC's Bridges supercomputer.
From Daily Herald, Oct. 9, 2018: The U.S. Department of Energy has announced that it has awarded scientists at its Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory more than $10 million to spur research that could revolutionize not only our understanding of nature, but also the very way we investigate it.
From AAAS, Oct. 5, 2018: Even as an intellectual powerhouse who took pride is his achievements as a postdoctoral researcher and professor at Columbia University, Lederman maintained a characteristic wit and self-effacing disposition.
From From University College London news, Oct. 5, 2018: International scientists are one step closer to answering the most fundamental question of our existence, 'why are we here?', as part of a global collaboration, DUNE, involving UCL researchers.
From New Scientist Netherlands, Oct. 9, 2018: De nieuwe neutrinodetector ProtoDUNE is aangezet en heeft zijn eerste metingen verricht. Deze detector is met 565 kubieke meter ongeveer zo groot als een gemeentelijk zwembad, en is het prototype voor een reuzendetector in de VS, die negentig keer zo groot wordt.
Inside the international hunt for the ghost particle
The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment wants to solve one of the biggest mysteries in science today, namely, why do we exist? Fermilab scientist Bonnie Fleming appears in this 6-minute explainer video.
