Researchers at TIFR Hyderabad (TIFRH) explore topics spanning biological phenomena, nuclear magnetic resonance, advanced materials, laser spectroscopy, condensed matter physics, synthetic chemistry, theoretical physics, and computational chemistry. The wide-ranging research pursuits at TIFRH underscore our commitment to interdisciplinary collaboration and knowledge expansion, driving advancements across scientific frontiers.

The most unique feature of research at TIFRH, however, is the department-less structure of the institution. This allows for fluid, interdisciplinary research that places an emphasis on collaboration between research areas, and facilitates understanding and engagement between scientists. This is crucial within the context of contemporary Indian and global science, where it is increasingly becoming clear that societal challenges are best solved through multidisciplinary approaches.

Under the capable leadership of M Krishnamurthy (Centre Director), TIFRH fosters the works of nearly a hundred graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and scientific staff. A testament to the success of the research efforts at TIFRH is the fact that several research papers have been published in notable and globally renowned journals such as Nature Communications, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, Physical Review Letters, and Angewandte Chemie.
