- Fundamental Symmetries in Nuclear Physics Michael Ramsey-Musolf, Chicago, January, 2007 Fifty years of parity-violation in nuclear physics Nuclear physics studies of fundamental symmetries played an essential role in developing & confirming the Standard Model Our role has been broadly recognized within and beyond NP The next decade presents NP with a historic opportunity to build on this legacy in developing the new Standard Model The value of our contribution will be broadly recognized outside the field
