The Ohio State University Center for Cosmology and AstroParticle Physics (CCAPP) is a leading-edge interdisciplinary research center that studies dark energy, dark matter, the origin of cosmic structure, and the highest energy particles in the universe to find answers to the fundamental questions “What is the universe made of?” and “How did it evolve?”

The distinctive trait of CCAPP, for which we are internationally known, is our interactive and collaborative culture, which leads to research breakthroughs, mentors the next generation of scientists to be leaders, and motivates our commitment to outreach.
