leARning via Augmented Reality: When, Why, and How to Use This Cutting Edge Technology in Life Sciences Education

  • Leslie Mason, Sage Therapeutics,
  • Carolyn Kopchains, Red Nucleus,
  • Chuck Karvelas, Sage Therapeutics

In this interactive learning lab, Sage Therapeutics will share their first-hand experience creating 2 different augmented reality (AR) experiences for a product launch workshop: one detailing the mechanism of disease for postpartum depression (PPD), and the other showcasing several patient journeys through PPD. Participants will hear about the development process for these projects (including the technology considerations and requirements for AR and the best applications for the technology), as well as view these 2 examples live.

Participants will walk away with both an understanding of when AR may be a good approach at their companies and a high-level understanding of how the technological solution is developed.
