### Research Areas

##### THE STANDARD MODEL TO THE LIMITS

The Standard Model (SM) is our best construction of the microscopic reality at the most fundamental level. The degree of consistency with experiment is astonishingly good.

Our Institute has played a fundamental role in this broad field of research.

##### COSMIC PARTICLES AND FUNDAMENTAL PHYSICS

Astroparticle Physics, as well as the connections between Particle Physics and Cosmology, are experiencing a new golden age.

Our Institute has been one of the pioneers in the Pierre Auger Observatory, a giant air shower array in Argentina.

##### NUCLEAR PHYSICS FROM THE LAB TO IMPROVE PEOPLE’S HEALTH

The participation of IGFAE in new international facilities such as FAIR offers unprecedented opportunities to contribute to understanding the nature of the strong interaction in the non-perturbative regime, the structure of the nuclear many-body systems and their astrophysical implications.
