Virtual reality molecules: a new way to interact

Reading time: 3 minutes

Just a few years ago, virtual reality would have been the last word that comes to mind when thinking about medicine and scientific research. Now, it has taken a massive leap into medicine and is becoming a promising technology in this field. It has started gaining popularity in biochemistry and molecular biology too. Using VR to view and interact with the molecular structure of a chemical. It would save time for researchers to understand how these virtual reality molecules behave by visualizing the images or their 3D representations through VR and not under a microscope straining their eyes.


Year of Creation


A company named C4X Discovery turned this concept into reality. They came up with their own VR tool – 4Sight, which can be used to create 3D images and visuals of chemical compositions and drugs.

The scientists and research team at C4X Discovery work hard in developing medicines for diseases like Parkinsons and Dementia. Working with the old method of using 2D images was a great challenge for the team as it required them to be very visually oriented people. The scientists came up with a second idea of photographically capturing the same virtual reality molecules under different orientations. It was another time-consuming idea.With this new tool developed by C4X Discovery, it will dramatically change the way scientists used to interact with the molecular models of the chemicals.

A medicinal chemist at C4XD is very excited about this platform. He says that VR just brought virtual reality molecules to his world and he can manipulate them just like comparing simple things.

C4X Discovery is one of the leading companies in creating anticancer drugs. In collaboration with Indivior, a pharmaceutical company, this tool is being pushed to the mass market.
