It's packed with 3D printed replicas of viruses and proteins implicated in diseases, including influenza and HIV. They're made with a technology called 3D printing, which makes 3D objects from a digital image in a way that's akin to printing images on a piece of paper. The technology is already used in the medical and dental, footwear, and jewelry industries. Subramaniam, a biophysicist, and his colleagues learn more about how diseases are transmitted with these 'touchable science' tools at the newly-created Living Lab, a collaboration between the National Institutes of Health and instrument maker FEI.
