Research Campus & Facilities

Located in the affluent Las Vegas community of Summerlin, Roseman University’s campus is comprised of three buildings totaling 431,425 square feet of office, lab, conference room, and common space. An additional 30 acres of land owned by the University will be developed in the future as part of a campus masterplan. Currently, the campus includes:

  • 69,000 square feet of available state-of-the-art, turn-key laboratories as well as office space.
  • 10,000 square feet of vivarium and laboratory space.
  • A 100-seat auditorium, restaurant, and medical and dental patient care space.
  • Just minutes in walking distance of the campus buildings is Element Las Vegas Summerlin, a boutique hotel operated by Marriott, offering convenient accommodations to visitors.

Currently in development and pursuing accreditation, Roseman University’s College of Medicine is based at the Summerlin Campus, as is Cure 4 The Kids Foundation, an independent division of the university providing comprehensive outpatient care to children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases.

Infrastructure and Research Support Services

Supporting over 10,000 square feet of vivarium and lab space for animal research, Roseman University offers full-time, certified husbandry staff to provide a wide array of husbandry care and services.

Roseman University offers the opportunity for clinical collaboration with its accredited academic programs in the Colleges of Dental Medicine, Pharmacy, and Nursing, as well as the College of Medicine.

Roseman University’s Grants Administration Office provides administrative, contracting, and financial services to assist in the development and management of sponsored projects to support the University and its research community through the entire grant lifecycle.

With access to a vast collection of resources & databases, the Roseman University Library can assist with research projects in a variety of ways: as an advising resource, consulting support role, or in the case of more extensive projects, librarians can assist as a member of the research team.

The Roseman University Institutional Review Board safeguards the rights and welfare of human subjects who participate in research conducted under the auspices of the University or external partners, and to ensure that subjects are aware of their rights and protections available to them.

The University’s human research protection program is based on three basic ethical principles described in the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research. The three principles are respect for persons, beneficence, and justice.

The IRB is charged with the review of all research projects that involve humans. The IRB has the authority to approve, require modifications (to secure approval), or disapprove all research activities that fall within its jurisdiction as specified by both the federal regulations and institutional policy.
