Virtual and augmented reality app takes VR/AR beyond gaming into the world of STEM
SAN DIEGO, October 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Nanomea virtual and augmented reality software company for scientific discovery, today announced that its molecular software application will be available on the upcoming Meta Quest Pro.
Meta Quest Pro users will soon be able to use the app to build and enter molecules, collaborate with real-time teams around the world, and inspire the next generation of chemists and biologists.
Nanome helps scientists uncover “eureka” moments that might otherwise be easily missed – deepening scientists’ understanding of the interactions that occur at the molecular level. This allows scientists to bring life-saving drugs to market faster and better understand how mutations work, helping to fight pandemics.
Agricultural, biopharmaceutical, chemical and food companies are already using Nanome to make research and development (R&D) decisions worth billions of dollars. More than half of the top 20 pharmaceutical companies and other research and development labs use Nanome for their drug discovery efforts, including Novartis, Rock (Chugai) and Oakridge National Laboratories.
Although computer-aided drug discovery tools have become more common in R&D environments, they have traditionally only been used by specialized computational chemists. Nanome lowers the barrier to entry, allowing more scientists to analyze and design using state-of-the-art computer algorithms.
In academia, the platform represents a huge leap forward from traditional physical molecular models invented by August Wilhelm von Hofmann in the 1860s, making the study of molecules immersive and interactive. For students, traditionally challenging academic fields like organic chemistry and molecular biology become exciting and accessible through Nanome’s virtual reality platform, inspiring future chemists and biologists.
Steve McCloskeyFounder and CEO of Nanomesaid, “Nanome helps scientists and students get into molecular structures and hold them in their hands, leading to more and faster scientific breakthroughs and deeper learning.
“We are thrilled to offer a free version of Nanome on the new Meta Quest Pro, which will bring the world of science to life for millions of people around the world. The inclusion of Nanome demonstrates the wider benefits of the new headset. of Meta beyond the game alone.
“For decades, scientists have turned to visualization tools like 3D glasses to help make molecular chemistry and biology more accessible and tangible. Now, with access to virtual and augmented reality, Nanome will give even more people the ability to collaborate and interact directly. with their data and their molecules by literally grabbing and moving molecules to solve scientific problems.
“The inclusion of Nanome on the Meta Quest Pro will also bring science to life and inspire the next generation of chemists and biologists.”
Nanome is available for free on the new Meta Quest Pro headset, which will be released on October 25. Users can already download the app on Application LabSteamVR, Vive Business and Pico app stores or download from www.nanome.ai/setup.

Nanome is the first virtual and augmented reality software company to launch an immersive, real-time collaboration platform for scientific discovery, and is changing the way we understand and interact with science at the molecular level. The software environment allows users to view, modify and simulate proteins, chemical compounds and nucleic acids to accelerate scientific decision making. The platform facilitates efficient data communication and integrates with existing computational chemistry workflows, features that have led to the adoption of the San Diego-based company’s enterprise solution by pharmaceutical and biotech companies around the world. whole world.
