Physics research at the University of Liverpool

Physics for Science and Society

Researchers in our Department lead world-class R&D programmes in fundamental science and applied research. They are collaborating with the leading institutes and laboratories around the world, including CERN in Geneva, STFC's Diamond Light Source and Daresbury Laboratory in the UK, ESRF and GANIL in France, GSI and DESY in Germany, and TRIUMF in Canada.

They use their unique expertise in these areas for their day-to-day teaching. This allows our undergraduate and postgraduate students to not only learn about physics throughout their studies, but to be part of cutting edge physics all the time.
