Assoc. Prof John McGhee discusses the application of VR in the Scientific discovery and Medical fields.
Using data from high-resolution electron microscopy we have reconstructed a human breast cancer cell in 3D in order to better visualise mechanisms of nanoparticle internalisation and trafficking. This 'flythough' movie shows the external and internal VR cell environments, allowing the view to walk on- or inside, a cancer cell. This is a collaborative project funded by the ARC Centre of Excellence in Bio-Nano Science and Technology.
John McGhee is a 3D Computer Artist whose work explores of the visualisation of complex scientific and biomedical data using 3D computer animation techniques, most recently on Virtual Reality (VR) headsets. Projects include using VR in stroke rehabilitation, clinical MRI 3D visualisation for patient education and the application of VR in bio-nano cellular data visualisation. This has culminated in John being recognised as one of UNSW Australia’s 21 ‘Rising Stars’.
