The Daystrom Institute, also known as the Daystrom Research Institute, was a 24th century organization that contributed to the United Federation of Planets. It was named after Doctor Richard Daystrom, who invented the duotronic computer and attempted the first multitronic computer. (TOS: "The Ultimate Computer")

The Institute had its own Archaeological Council. (DS9: "Q-Less")

In 2364, the Institute was developing a tomographic imaging scanner, capable of multiphasic resolution. By 2370, this device was standard equipment aboard the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "All Good Things...")

The Institute had several colleges that included the Daystrom Institute of Technology, where Dr. Leah Brahms was a graduate. She eventually worked on the Enterprise's warp engines as a member of the Theoretical Propulsion Group. (TNG: "Booby Trap") Commander Bruce Maddox held the Associate Chair of Robotics at the Daystrom Technological Institute in the mid 24th century. (TNG: "The Measure Of A Man")

There is a Daystrom Annex on Galor IV. In 2366, Vice Admiral Anthony Haftel was assigned there. (TNG: "The Offspring")

Vash was offered a post at the Institute by Professor Woo after she returned from her journeys with Q in 2369. (DS9: "Q-Less")

Seconds before he killed himself by piloting his shuttlecraft into Epsilon 119, Gideon Seyetik asked Benjamin Sisko to send his obituary to the Daystrom Institute for publication. (DS9: "Second Sight")

In 2378, when The Doctor's holomatrix was in danger of decompiling, he requested that Captain Janeway donate his mobile emitter to the institute for study. (VOY: "Renaissance Man")

In an alternate future, Leah Brahms had become the director of the Institute. (TNG: "All Good Things...")

It is suggested in "All Good Things..." that the Daystrom Institute might be located on Rigel III or at least in the Rigel system, as Leah Brahms, the new director in the alternate future, was living on that planet with her family.
