The Institute for Advanced Study conducts interdisciplinary theoretical research across a number of disciplines including quantum physics, quantum chemistry, cognitive science, information science and applied mathematics.

Current research projects include:

  • Quantum chemistry of biomolecules and their properties
  • Quantum histories, weak measurements and weak values
  • Quantum physics of neuronal synaptic communication
  • Quantum information and physical origin of consciousness
  • Semantic networks for enhancement of human creativity

The Institute for Advanced Study supports the publication of Quanta, an open access academic journal for original research and review articles on foundations of quantum mechanics, mathematical physics and philosophy of science.
