Research Directions


  • Elementary Particle Physics

    Experimental research of hadron structure, mechanisms of elementary particle mass origin, field interaction properties. Search for physics phenomena beyond the Standard Model, research of exotic states of nuclear matter.

  • Neutrino Physics and Astrophysics

    Experimental determination of lepton mixing in the Standard Model and beyond, of neutrino mass and its nature. Research of properties of interaction between neutrinos and matter. Multimessenger astronomy using ultra-high-energy neutrinos and photons.

  • Applied Research

    Design, development and usage of novel detectors for experimental research in particle physics, nuclear physics and biology; biomedical and radiogenetic research using different types of ionizing radiation; precision laser metrology; development of systems for new-generation accelerators and colliders for basic and applied research.

  • Infrastructure and equipment upgrade

    Dzhelepov Laboratory of Nuclear Problems is the oldest laboratory in the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research. To keep up with the times, it is necessary to upgrade scientific and technological equipment, develop new R&D and methodological laboratories, renew the machine-tool stock of the DNLP Workshop, and create modern attractive working conditions for our staff and visitors to JINR.
