Futurity breaks one million visitors
Since launching in September 2009, Futurity has attracted more than 1,000,000 visitors to research stories covering topics such as health, culture, the environment, science, engineering & technology.
The site features the latest discoveries from 46 research universities in the United States and Canada as well as 8 UK Russell Group universities. The project is led by Duke University, Stanford University, and the University of Rochester.
The site allows discoveries made by scholars at British institutions to have a much bigger impact across the Atlantic and all over the world.
More than forty research articles from the University of Leeds have been showcased to date, with recent posts including 'off-the-shelf' tissue transplants and the development of a virtual reality software that plans the safe decommissioning of nuclear power plants and other nuclear facilities, potentially saving millions of pounds.
