Today, elementary particle physics is confronted with a set of key questions, the answers of which are tightly related to the development of the early universe. How did the particles acquire their mass? What generated the matter asymmetry in our universe? The institute is currently participating in two large international collaborations to explore the matter/anti-matter asymmetry, the BABAR experiment currently operated at the Stanford Linear Accellerator Center in California and the LHCb experiment currently under construction at CERN in Geneva.
