Tata Institute of Fundamental Research,
Centre for Interdisciplinary Sciences (TCIS), Hyderabad


tifr hyderabad

The most exciting areas of scientific research today are interdisciplinary in character. The problems they are concerned with have diverse origins: laboratories, hospitals, industry, and the natural world around us. What unifies them is the intellectual challenge of new frontiers in basic science.


At the TIFR Centre for Interdisciplinary Sciences (TCIS) we will explore these new vistas, creating a culture that transcends the divisions of pure and applied, engineering and science, experiment and theory, education and research. This pioneering centre will be the leading edge of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research's ambitious new presence in Hyderabad, TIFR-H


The permanent campus of TCIS and TIFR-H is under construction amidst the rocks and greenery next to Hyderabad Central University, and the first research building and hostel will soon be ready. Our transit location, near the scenic Osman Sagar lake in Gandipet, is a 40,000 sq ft building with cafeteria, library, class rooms, conference facilities, offices and laboratories for our first wave of faculty and their students, and a supercomputer facility coming on line shortly.

    Research by TCIS faculty Prof. P K Madhu and Dr. Kaustubh Mote and TCIS PhD student Debabrata Dhara, jointly with  Prof. Sudipta Maiti's group at TIFR Mumbai, drew much attention at the meeting of the Biophysical Society in LA, 27 Feb - 2 March 2016. Creatively combining solid-state NMR with other spectroscopic and computational approaches, they have ferreted out the hidden internal structural changes that turn amyloid aggregates from toxic to benign.

  • TCIS welcomes new faculty!


    Dr. Raghunathan Ramakrishnan's research interest lies in chemical space design, automated high-throughput computation, statistical machine learning of property datasets. 

    Dr. Kalyaneswar Mandal's research lies at the interface of chemistry and biology. He utilizes the combination of synthetic organic chemistry, total chemical protein synthesis and protein crystallography to understand - and then precisely control - the molecular basis of protein function..











  • Congratulations!

    Prof. Sriram Ramaswamy has been elected as  Fellow of the Royal Society.
