"Being a part of this project, which is set to providing Elsevier's authors, readers and other users with improved 3D visualization capabilities online on ScienceDirect has been an exceptional opportunity for us," added Julien Jomier, CEO of Kitware SAS in Lyon, France. "Our infrastructure provides the much-needed resources necessary for scientists to interact with publications and maximize their understanding of existing research."
