Helping pharmaceutical companies discover new drugs faster
NOMAD VR tools can be used to experience more than just materials science data!

Working with the Research and Innovation team of TATA Consultancy Services (TCS), a Global Leader in IT Services, NOMAD's Rubén García-Hernández developed the virtual reality visualization of a new in-silico model of skin developed by TCS. In their tutorial, you can watch drugs pass through virtual skin.
This technology holds enormous potential for drug companies - new, better drugs that can be applied on the skin rather than injected can be discovered using computers instead of time-consuming, costly experiments with cells in laboratories or animal models.
