Welcome to the Center for Frontiers in Nuclear Science
The Electron-Ion Collider (EIC) is essential for our understanding of quantum chromodynamics
(QCD) and in particular the role of gluons and sea quarks in the structure of nucleons
and nuclei. The mission of this Center is to promote and facilitate the realization
of the U.S. based EIC by enhancing the science case and collaborations amongst the
scientists around the world interested in the EIC.
