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 be ready by the end of 2014. 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.
