Printing receptors in 3D and viewing in VR

‘Pharmacology 2018’ met in London this week for the Winter meeting of the British Pharmacological Society (BPS).  At the ‘innovations in pharmacology teaching’ session we exhibited our 3D printed receptors and also the Sketchfab site we constructed for the BPS.  Sketchfab is becoming an extremely popular way of exhibiting 3D digital models and offering 3D prints.  A real bonus of Sketchfab is that it enables viewing of 3D models in VR.  Hop over to the site and have a look; https://sketchfab.com/britishpharmacologicalsociety

The 3D printed receptors were very well received and stimulated great discussions on active learning.
