Main building for the Isaac Newton Institute

The Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences is an international research institute for mathematics and theoretical physics. Part of the University of Cambridge,[citation needed] it is named after one of the university's most illustrious figures, the mathematician and natural philosopher Sir Isaac Newton. It opened in 1992.

Its building adjoins the Cambridge Centre for Mathematical Sciences. In 1993 the British mathematician Andrew Wiles announced at the institute his proof of Fermat's last theorem. The institute was in 1999 awarded a Queen's Anniversary Prize in recognition of "world-class achievement in education." Its director as of May 2012 was Professor John Toland.
