3D Animation

Our 3D animation program, which was established in 2003 with financial support from Champlin Foundations, has covered a variety of topics that range from Resistance of the Cancer Drug Iressa to the Mechanism of the Antidepressant Prozac.This has become a collaborative effort between faculty and students to produce educational tools to facilitate the explanation of complex topics to their peers.

Below are some examples of animations created by URI students and faculty. To see more, please visit our YouTube channel.
