Access 3D Lab | University of South Florida

Welcome to Access 3D Lab

Access 3D Lab brings together faculty, students, and stakeholders to promote transformative research in the digital realm. Our goal is to incubate and support innovative research and teaching in STEM disciplines, the arts, and the humanities. In addition to serving USF students and faculty, we advance societal change through outreach efforts that promote healthy people, healthy communities, and healthy environments. The lab is distinct among other units on campus because it provides the the resources needed to explore the intersection of digital humanities and digital sciences through a transdisciplinary lens.
