How was it created? 

BioDigital is working with leading virologists and leveraging its 3D Human Visualization platform to produce these interactive 3D models. 


What kinds of content does it include? 

The dashboard includes 3D visualizations of COVID-19: the structure of the virus, the way the virus infects humans, how it is transmitted, its symptoms, and ultimately potential treatments. These visualizations span molecular, cellular, and gross-level anatomy and disease.
