The QMUL Particle Physics Research Centre (PPRC), part of the School of Physics and Astronomy, is active in leading international experiments, focused either on discovery and identification of new particles, or on testing the quantitative features of globally unifying theories. The PPRC comprises about 30 staff and 20 Ph.D. students.
Queen Mary PPRC personnel are involved in two experiments (ATLAS and T2K) that are currently collecting data, experiments in the planning phase (SNO+) and experiments that are completing physics analyses (BaBar, H1 and CDF). In addition, we have a substantial involvement in the development of the UK distributed computing grid, GridPP.
