Abstract

Biomedical research is a diverse and rapidly evolving subject area. The research and development that takes place as part of the field is aimed at understanding subjects such as diseases, disease progression, their treatment(s), treatment impact on patients as well as the general increase in understanding of the advancement of health sciences. The money and time invested in research is vast and discovery of novel data and production of publication(s) is seen as success. However in today’s connected world scientists have to do more to ensure that their research and the impact thereof, is better communicated to the wider audiences. One of the major means to do this is via public engagement, of which there are many ways to achieve this. Advances in technology have led to interactive and immersive visual technologies that enable the next phase of public engagement to be available to a greater audience.
