Bio-IT World gives Merck its Best Practice Award for virtual poster session held in ProtoSphere

Virtual 3-D model of Merck's Bio-IT World award
The kudos continues to roll in around Merck's use of ProtoSphere to produce a virtual poster session.

It's earned recognition from the editors of Bio-IT World, who just gave Merck its Best Practice Award in the Editors' Choice Award category. Congratulations to the Merck team!

One of our friends from Merck was in our offices yesterday and he brought the award with him. We snapped a photo, and our design team had a little fun rendering the award into a virtual 3-D model in ProtoSphere. So no, it's really not bigger than Dom ... it's just enlarged to show detail? Hey, I did say virtual reality. ;)

Bio-IT World’s Best Practices Awards recognize organizations for their outstanding innovations and excellence in the use of technologies, practices, and novel business strategies that will advance drug discovery, development, biomedical research, and clinical trials.

This year’s Bio-IT World Best Practices Awards attracted a record 74 entrants, including a range of large pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, academic institutions, and niche service providers.

You can read more about the awards and winners by flipping over to Bio-IT World's coverage online. The project was also detailed in a recent Nature Chemistry article. And as regular readers know, we bought a small supply of them, which we're providing free of charge. However, we're just about out. There are a few left if you want one. Just hit our website to fill out the request form.

Congrats again to Merck!
