In the 600 hectares of its campus are located the Italian National Center for Research and the Italian Space Agency, and a new center for applied physics, aimed to the realization of super B accelerator, will be shortly available. Furthermore, in the campus is present the Policlinico Universitario Tor Vergata, one of the most important teaching hospitals in Italy. The University is partner in several National and International research projects.

The Department of Biomedicine and Prevention (formerly Department of Biopathology), is composed by biologists and physicians devoted to the study of epidemiological, clinical and experimental aspects of human diseases. In recent years, several projects have been developed in the Department for studying in vitro and in vivo possible adverse effects of engineered nanomaterials, regarding in particular the effects of these materials on reproductive and cardiovascular systems. Furthermore, the evaluation of human exposure to nanomaterials in occupational settings is currently being performed. Up to date research infrastructures, including a large animal station, are available in the Department.
