    This talk will explain how immersive technology has successfully found a way into the historically slow-moving pharmaceutical industry. Not only will you learn how specialists at Merck managed to sell the technology internally, but you'll learn about how their scientists are leveraging the technology in drug discovery.


    This session has two primary takeaways: how Merck's VR technology was sold internally to get to the step of creating proof of concepts (harder than you might think in big pharma), and how their scientists are using the tech in drug discovery.

    Intended Audience

    Anyone interested in an interesting VR/MR use-case for scientists focused on drug-discovery. Also for anyone interested in a team's journey of getting this tech in front of the internal business.
