LabCosmos is a virtual institute of Cosmology, supported by the Office of the Dean of Research of the University of São Paulo, under the  Research Nuclei Program (NAP). Its members are researchers from the Astronomy Department of (IAG-USP), the Physics Institute (IF-USP), the Mathematics and Statistics Institute (IME-USP), the USP Physics Institute in São Carlos (IFSC-USP), and the Polytechnic School (EP-USP).

The LabCosmos team is composed of astronomers, physicists, mathematicians, computer scientists and engineers. We work in a multidisciplinary way in several areas of research related in some way or another with Cosmology. We are working on several projects, in international collaborations, which aim at tackling the most important problems in the frontiers of Physics and Astronomy, as well as to develop the new technologies that will enable the observations that can make these new discoveries.
