'The Institute for Research in Fundamental Sciences (IPM) which is affiliated with Iran's Ministry of Science, Research, and Technology, was founded in 1989 under the name of Institute for Studies in Theoretical Physics and Mathematics (from which it has retained its present acronym),' IPM website reported. 

'The Institute started its work with three core research groups in theoretical physics and three core research groups in mathematics, and with very few resources. Its goal was to carry out original research in these areas and at the same time creating a model that could be used to propagate and improve research all over Iran. The Institute was able to grow and garner more resources and attract researchers from other disciplines as well. Thus in 1997 it acquired its present name and at present is comprised of 8 schools conducting research in many different areas of fundamental sciences.'
