VR could drastically effect how researchers study cancer.
Doctors at the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute (CRUK) are creating a new virtual lab that will build use VR to build 3D models of tumor samples, providing a new way to look at cancer.
The researchers start by studying a tumor tissue biopsy – the researchers have started by looking at breast cancer – which is then sliced wafer-thin and stained with markers, like what would normally be examined under a standard microscope. In this process, however, the samples are instead scanned by a computer program which creates an interactive 3D
