Chicago Loop Location
In Fall 2008, the Center for Decision Research opened a new research facility in downtown Chicago at the corner of Clark & Adams, across from Federal Plaza.
At the Loop location, researchers with the PIMCO Decision Research Laboratories at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business Center for Decision Research are able to conduct studies with a broader, more diverse set of participants, beyond the traditional university student population.
