Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics - Center for the Evolution of the Elements

The Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics - Center for the Evolution of the Elements (JINA-CEE) is a National Science Foundation (NSF) Physics Frontiers Center that addresses fundamental questions about the nature of extremely dense matter in the cosmos, and the origin of the chemical elements that make up our world.

JINA-CEE is a unique interdisciplinary research network that links rare isotope science with the physics of stable isotopes, the physics of stars and stellar explosions, and modern multi-messenger astronomy that includes ground and space-based observatories, neutrino observatories, and gravitational wave detectors. The network brings together nuclear experimentalists, nuclear theorists, astronomers, theoretical astrophysicists, and computational physicists from 26 institutions in eight countries. By enabling rapid communication, exchange of data, and coordination across field boundaries, JINA-CEE advances the scientific frontiers in nuclear astrophysics.
