Tata Institute of Fundamental Research,
Centre for Interdisciplinary Sciences (TCIS), 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 intellectual challenge, and the emergence 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 now under construction amidst the rocks and greenery right next to the Hyderabad Central University, and the first research building will be ready by the end of 2013. Our transit location, on similar terrain near the scenic Osman Sagar lake in Gandipet, is a comfortable 40,000 sq ft building with cafeteria, library, class rooms, administrative office and conference facilities and, of course, pleasant, well-appointed offices for our first wave of faculty and their students. We have space for many laboratories, and a supercomputer facility is coming on line shortly.
