Magic School bus for Computational Cell received 2017 AHSS grant

We are very pleased to announce the launch of the project Magic School bus for Computational Cell project, funded by the 2017 AHSS and Integrated Research Advancement Grant at UC. Magic School bus for Computational Cell” project will construct a mixed reality visualization at the College of DAAP and College of Medicine by integrating virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) for molecular and cellular physiology research. The project will employ state-of-the-art VR and AR software and hardware, which allows for creative approaches using holographic imaging and computer simulation. This project will expand our cutting-edge research in space modeling & architecture visualization to the new computational cell field, including the creation of 3D models of the intestine tubes, and envisioning cell changes through agent-based simulation.
