Perimeter Institute launches the Centre for the Universe, a global focal point for research into key questions in cosmology. 


An Honorary Fellowship from the Institute of Physics is among a number of recent acknowledgements from the science community for Neil Turok. 


A new model of quantum cosmology shows how this universe might have been born from the one before it – while avoiding the broken physics of the big bang singularity. 


The Perimeter Opportunity

Great moments in science require great work  and great support.


Neil Turok wins prestigious Tate Medal from the American Institute of Physics, donates prize money to African Institute for Mathematical Sciences.


Hunting for Common Ground

Experimentalists and theorists gather at Convergence to explore shared unknowns.

A New Golden Age

A hundred years ago in Berlin, Albert Einstein finally homed in on the definitive version of general relativity, his spectacular explanation of the law of gravity.

Beyond the Success of Simplicity

By David Harris

“These are amazing times for physics…. Many of us believe physics is poised for a new revolution.” With those words Perimeter Institute Director Neil Turok officially opened the first Convergence conference.


Three Perimeter researchers have received Early Researcher Awards from the Ontario government.
