Description

The same technology used in Pokémon Go and Snapchat filters is now being used by a University of Aberdeen lecturer to explain fundamental biological processes.

Dr John Barrow, a Senior Lecturer in Molecular Biology has been awarded a prestigious £10,000 grant to develop an augmented and virtual reality app to help students understand how the body works on a microscopic level.

The app will allow students to use their phones and tablets to interact with 3D visualisations that explain complex biological functions.
