Life 3D

Union of Virtual Reality and Bioscience

What is the project

The complex molecules of life are fascinating, but learning their shape and structure can be challenging. This project is combining 3D printed molecules with interactive software to enable students to see, feel and explore the molecules with direct links to contextual information, videos and teaching resources.

Impact

Biomolecular science is vital to a wide range of disciplines, and this project will support increasing engagement with the subject and enable undergraduate and post-graduate students to gain a deeper and richer understanding of the topic.
