The Scientific Pole tackles several research themes, all of them strongly focused on galay formation and evolution. These range from the Milky Way to the highest redshift galaxies. The studies carried out at GEPI are firmly anchored on the observations and their interpretation, accompanied by a significant expertise on numerical simulations. In this philosophy the researchers at GEPI also play key roles in the development of astronomical instrumentation, both in ground-based and space-born. This activity is in virtuous synergy with the Instrumental Pole.
