PsA Immersive Experience

Explore 3D animations on the WebGL platform to learn about psoriatic arthritis (PsA) pathophysiology and several classes of PsA therapies.

During the exercise:

  • Place a mouse over an object or a button to read a label
  • Click on buttons to navigate through the joint, cellular and molecular levels, to select a drug, and to advance the animation
  • At the molecular level, click on the center of a green circle to see the effect of the drug
  • Use a schema with keyboard commands to enhance your experience by turning the virtual objects and changing the view

Please use the Google Chrome browser for this self-directed exercise.

MOA Videos

Mechanism of action (MOA) animation is an effective approach for visualizing molecular and cellular concepts. Learners absorb information presented through animated medical videos about 60,000 times faster than information from text-based media.
