TTS has been actively promoting scientific visualization as a research tool at Tufts since it collaborated with the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Engineering to create the NSF-funded Tufts Center for Scientific Visualization in 2008. To further this effort, TTS launched in 2010 the first Visualizing Research@Tufts Awards program with the goal of promoting visualization as a research tool for all disciplines, showcasing Tufts research projects, and providing opportunities for research collaboration. The program is based on the NSF’s International Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge.
