THE 4SIGHT PROJECT: USING VR IN THE DRUG DISCOVERY SPACE - Immerse UK Case Study

The company’s 4Sight project pioneers the creation of a specialised visualiser to allow its research scientists to view, understand and interrogate the complex, multidimensional molecular shape data of drug molecules. Having measured these shapes using the company’s proprietary Conformetrix technology, this “4D molecular data” can then be visualised and manipulated to inspire the design of drug molecules in new and innovative ways. Working from both a desktop environment and within a VR space, the visualiser also facilitates simultaneous collaboration with multiple stakeholders across various sites.

“4Sight allows users to see the results of an experiment and a view of drug molecules in ways that have never before been possible”, as C4X’s Chief Scientific Officer Craig Fox explains.
