Welcome! Our mission is to advance research in
theoretical and experimental physics at the interface
of the Energy, Intensity, and Cosmic frontiers.

We seek answers to key open questions about
nature’s fundamental interactions, such as:

Why is there more matter than anti-matter in the Universe?

What additional forces were active during the first moments after the Big Bang?

How are protons and neutrons put together?

We address these and other questions through international
topical workshops; a visiting researcher program;
UMass faculty, staff, and student research
as well as other activities.

News & Announcements

School on the Physics of Electric Dipole Moments

Wednesday, November 2, 2016 - 10:00am to Saturday, November 5, 2016 - 12:00pm


The school is designed to provide theoretical background for EDM experimentalists. The focus will be on pedagogical lectures, informal discussions with ample time for Q&A, and simple exercises. The goal is to enable participants to obtain an up-to-date picture of the physics of EDMs, including implications for physics beyond the Standard Model and cosmology.
