Research

MIRA aims to foster excellence in astrophysical research by catalyzing cutting-edge research projects in areas in which U-M offers particular expertise, such as star- and planet-formation, cosmology and galaxy clusters, high-energy astrophysics, instrumentation, or magnetohydrodynamics.

By choosing pressing topics within these areas for semester- or year-long research campaigns, we seek to focus a critical mass of thinkers here and at our peer institutions on these issues, and to exploit the synergies made possible by diverse perspectives and skill sets.
