Lancaster physicists work in collaboration with others at CERN (Geneva), Fermilab (Chicago), and KEK (Japan) using high energy beams from large accelerators to determine the ultimate structure of matter and the forces of nature. Whereas others of us work deep underground at SNOLAB (Canada), using the planet and the sun itself to determine the nature of neutrinos.

Prof. Helen O'Keeffe is Head of the Particle Physics Research Division. Prof. Roger Jones is Principal Investigator of the current Consolidated Grant and he is also the current Head of the Physics Department.
