• Animated Atlas of Oncology

The Animated Atlas of Oncology is an attempt to capture the key mechanisms that take place beyond the purview of the microscope in the course of this affliction, and, many of the processes of treatment that were inspired by new lines of research into cancer, by way of very informative videos through spectacular and realistic animations and images. It is a collection of 60 animated videos and around 100 images.
