3 D Bioprinting says
Imagine. Printing personal implants from a patient's own stem cells. Or reproducing organ functions on laboratories the size of credit cards.

3D printing has the potential to revolutionize medicine.
Sitting at the intersection of materials science, chemistry,and bio- and mechanical engineering, biomedical 3D printing takes a new technology beyond traditional manufacturing and design applications. Simplified drug development, individualized and patient-specific medical treatment, on-demand tissue structures — all possible through the development of this technology.

And beyond the technology itself, unresolved questions. How will society adapt? How will the medical profession and regulatory framework handle the emergence of this disruptive new technology?
Join us for a preview of 3D printing's impact on medicine and society.
