Helping pharmaceutical companies discover new drugs faster 


NOMAD VR tools can be used to experience more than just materials science data!

Posted by: kylie

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.

There are many demos and videos of the exciting VR tools developed by NOMAD - have a look or get in touch with our VR team!
