lungs in silico
A visualization of pulmonary vasculature processes simulated in computer models.
Our client launched a research facility that harnesses machine intelligence to mimic cell behaviors and function in-silico. This enables molecular model testing for efficacy and safety to proceed at speeds unachievable in a traditional wet lab setting.
Our task was to visualize the lab's computational simulations of pulmonary vasculature behavior-- from organ to cell to molecule. The viewer enters and departs the digitized lung through the bronchi, vessels, and endothelial lining. We depicted the design and testing of molecular analogs binding to receptor proteins, and the restoration of equilibrium in unhealthy vasculature. The animation was generated to loop seamlessly on the research facilities' monitors.
