It was with great pleasure that the Chair of the MGMS, Prof. Philip Biggin, presented the 10th MGMS Silver Jubilee Award to Dr David Glowacki, from the University of Bristol. David was in Oxford as part of his MGMS Lecture Tour, and a jointly held with Comp Chem Kitchen and CCK-13.
David also demonstrated his VR system with a molecular dynamics engine using the MMFF94 force field and two buckyballs that could be independently and simultaneously manipulated by two people:
Thankfully, no one threw up, fell over, or tripped off the stage! And everyone who tried it was impressed at how easy it was to manipulate the molecules and interact with the simulation.
