Our research institutes


Research at the Institute of Chemical Sciences and Engineering (ISIC), on the main Lausanne campus and in Sion, Wallis, spans fundamental studies in theoretical chemistry and biochemistry to applications in catalysis, drug discovery and diagnostics, sustainability and the environment.


Mathematics plays a fundamental role in science and technology. Mathematical models are essential tool for scientists and engineers to solve complex problems requiring abstraction in all theoretical and applied scientific research, but also in the financial and insurance domains.


The Institute of Physics (IPHYS) is responsible for cutting-edge research over the whole spectrum of physics and in related domains, in collaboration with other disciplines. Research covers the following five domains of physics: quantum science, condensed matter, biophysics and complex systems, particle physics and astrophysics, energy.
