Virtual Reality-Based Drug Discovery Game
Writer(s): Steve Scherer
Gaurav Chopra, assistant professor of analytical and physical chemistry, is working with Purdue’s Envision Center to make a virtual reality-based drug discovery game powered by their very own drug docking and design software.
Combing a virtual reality headset with wireless hand controls and motion-tracking sensors will allow users to immerse themselves in a virtual world – a technology that could help in visualizing and developing new drugs.
The Chopra Lab is also developing education-based tutorials with Roy Tasker, professor of chemical education.
