Virtual reality (VR) is reinventing medicine. From patient recovery and wellbeing, to medical research and communication, this unique tool creates a literal world of possibilities.

Prompted by the Melbourne Museum’s visually stunning exhibition Biomedical Breakthroughs, join bio-animator Dr Drew Berry, medical practitioner Dr Hope Gates-Scovelle, and museum curator Dr Jo Simkin as they discuss VR in medicine—what’s cool, powerful, and downright revolutionary.


This event is made possible by the Hugh D T Williamson Foundation through funding for MPavilion’s series of events looking at design & science.
