The mission of the KICP is to cross disciplinary and institutional boundaries to address the most pressing scientific issues at the interface of astrophysics/cosmology and fundamental physics by bringing together a diverse group of scientists from the university departments and national laboratories: early-career to the most experienced; theoretical and experimental; astronomers and physicists. The current areas of research within the KICP include CMB, dark matter, dark energy/cosmic acceleration,  multi-messenger astrophysics, particle astrophysics, structure formation, survey science, and theory
