MegaMol is a cross-platform visualization prototyping framework that was started at the Visualization Research Center of the University of Stuttgart in context of the DFG Collaborative Research Center (SFB) 716. It also includes numerous contributions from the Chair of Computer Graphics and Visualisation of TU Dresden.

MegaMol is the preferred visualization tool of the developers of the molecular dynamics (MD) simulation program ls1 mardyn. It can easily be configured to write native MegaMol file formats.

MegaMol is also used as main development platform for the DFG-GACR project PROLINT at the Big Data Visual Analytics group of the University of Tübingen, which investigates new methods to visualize protein-ligand interactions in MD simulation data.

MegaMol development is and was partially supported by the German Research Foundation (DFG) as part of Collaborative Research Center (SFB) 716 and as part of the sustainability Project 391302154, by the Intel® Parallel Computing Center program (now Graphics and Visualization Centers of XeLLENCE), the ScaDS Dresden/Leipzig Competence Center for Scalable Data Services and Solutions, the ESF program Visual and Interactive Cyber-physical Systems Control and Integration (VICCI), and by BW Stiftung as part of the project Digital Human.
