Over twenty FHL resident scientists conduct research at FHL year round and approximately a hundred visiting researchers come to FHL each year likewise. In addition to the important science that happens here, an equally important reason why people come to FHL year after year is the camaraderie that is fostered amongst fellow faculty, students and researchers.

A recent list of researchers at FHL can be found here. A partial list of publications from these researchers, many directly related to their research at FHL can be found here.

As of Autumn, 2016 this is a list of current, funded projects by FHL resident researchers.
