NUMBER OF SCIENTISTS AND STUDENTS AT FERMILAB:
Six faculty, four postdocs and four graduate students

COLLABORATING AT FERMILAB SINCE:
Early 1970s

PARTICLE PHYSICS RESEARCH FOCUS:
The University of Maryland experimental high-energy physics group investigates a wide range of particle physics topics: top, B and neutrino physics and searches for new particles. The theory group investigates physics beyond the Standard Model, fields and strings, CPT symmetry, neutrino physics and studies of dark matter.

WHAT SETS PARTICLE PHYSICS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND APART?
Both the experiment and theory groups at the University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins University collaborate on the physics of the LHC. We also work with our colleagues in nuclear chemistry at Maryland, who are members of CMS experiment concentrating on heavy-ion physics. We include undergraduates in our research.

FUNDING AGENCIES:
DOE, NSF
