The George P. and Cynthia Woods Mitchell Institute for Fundamental Physics and Astronomy builds on the interface between Astrophysics, High Energy Experiment, and High Energy Theory to advance our knowledge and understanding of the Universe. We explore the Universe from the lightest particles to its most massive structures through vibrant research programs centered on theory, observations, and experiments. We are dedicated to sharing our knowledge and the excitement of discovery through education and public outreach, conferences, workshops, and a visitors’ program.

The Mitchell Institute is part of the Department of Physics and Astronomy in the College of Science at Texas A&M University.
