Getting to the Lab: Chicago is home to two international airports: Midway (MDW) and O’Hare (ORD). Both are roughly 30 minutes away from the lab via ground transportation and allow Uber pickups. (MIdway is slightly closer and much less crowded than O'Hare.) O’Hare and the Illinois Medical District are both located on the CTA Blue Line. Taking the Blue Line from O’Hare towards Forest Park, the lab can be reached in about an hour. From Midway, take the Orange Line towards the Loop. Transfer from the Orange Line to the Pink Line at the Washington/Wells stop. Take the Pink Line towards 54th/Cermak. The lab is right off of the Pink Line Polk stop. CTA passes and more information about public transit can be found here.
