Within the Master Drug Discovery & Safety, in collaboration with Dr Maikel Wijtmans and Dr Albert Kooistra, a prototype of a virtual reality (VR) instrument has been developed with which students can explore and manipulate the 3D structure of molecules. Hereby, students can ‘walk around’ structures, but also dive into a structure to examine its details.

The awarded project combines further development of this VR tool with the development of learning strategies as practical tools for the staff.
