What if you could hold a virus or an antibody in your hands?
Or actually watch as a cancer drug kinks a DNA, thus blocking its repair?
Guess what? You can.
At URI, we have created a one-of-a-kind program where students can animate, view, and print three-dimensional models to help them visualize and understand complex concepts and processes. Through this program, our faculty and students have discovered the incredible power of 3D printing and animation as effective teaching tools.
