The Science Visualization Lab is located in the Biomedical Communications unit, Department of Biology at the University of Toronto Mississauga. Our research focuses on the creation, testing, and dissemination of new visualization strategies for improving life sciences education. These strategies include linear narratives, interactive study tools, and digital games.
