Travel with us to some of the most remote locations of our planet!

Our graduate program is deeply influenced by our research activity. The University of Naples Federico II has a long tradition in the study of the biology, geology and chemistry of extreme environments, and over the decades has significantly contributed to the understanding of the limit of life, the function of our planet and the sustainable use of the biological resources found in extreme locations.

Our faculty are daring, visionary thinkers, actively engaged in research at the frontiers of the subjects they are teaching, creating intellectual excitement and providing cutting-the-edge insight to the students. Ongoing research includes a range of diverse topics aiming at understanding the functioning, resources as well as exploration potential of extreme environments.
