WVU Center for Astrophysics
Our rapidly growing research and teaching group within the Department of Physics at WVU explores a wide variety of hot topics in current astrophysics. Our current research strengths are in compact objects and galaxy formation and evolution. We have close ties with the nearby National Radio Astronomy Observatory and the Arecibo Observatory. Follow the links on the left for more information. Our research is supported by a West Virginia EPSCoR Research Challenge Grant, and grants from NASA, the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, the Research Corporation and the National Science Foundation.
