Abstract Sbarro Health Research Organization Inc. (S.H.R.O.) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to elucidating the molecular basis of different human diseases. S.H.R.O. eHealth program focuses on the intersection of medical informatics, public health, communication and eLearning/education, with the goal of improving health care through the latest information and communication technology. One important aspect of this program is DigiSLab, a Web 3.0 application. DigiSLab is hosted in two islands in Second Life (Biomedicine Research Labs and Biomedicine Research Lab2) containing virtual buildings, auditoriums, laboratories, offices, meeting rooms and a hospital. A typical application of DigiSLab is the virtual laboratory (figure 1a and 1b), a virtual space where it is possible to experience different molecular biology laboratory experiments. DigiSLab is open to everyone.
