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.
