Hen Lab - Laboratory for Nuclear Science @ MIT

Welcome to the Hen-Lab website; Here you can get to know the group, read about our research, and find our latest publications. We are (primarily) a scattering group that uses high-energy electron, neutrino, proton and ion scattering to study effects of QCD in the nuclear medium, the interplay between partonic and nucleonic degrees of freedom in nuclei (the EMC effect), neutrino-nucleus interactions and more. If you find our work interesting, and have space for more stamps on your passport, feel free to contact Or to learn how you can get involved!
