Nanotechnology Research Programs/Activities:

The 3D Visualisation Aesthetics Lab is an award-winning cross-disciplinary research hub that explores arts-led approaches for visualising complex scientific and biomedical scan data.

The research team, consisting of members with diverse multimedia and scientific backgrounds, utilise the latest in high-end interactive Virtual Reality (VR) platforms and computer graphics packages to develop systems to explore 3D landscapes derived from clinical and laboratory scan data.

Since its inception in early 2014, the lab has explored the challenges of visual narratives and developed novel ways of navigating complexity using creative methodologies from the video games, film and VR design industries. As a result, the 3D Visualisation Aesthetics Lab has become a world-leading centre for biomedical data visualisation.
