3D Printing – revisited
18th October 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
On the 18th of October we will hear from speakers within the University of Cambridge and the private sector on the developments seen as 3D Printing becomes more widespread, from engineering projects to medical applications.
Nidhin Laji - NHS England Clinical Entrepreneur and developer of a process to 3d print coronary valves.
Stuart Lowe - Life Science consultant at TTP with expertise in 3D bioprinting.
Late stage failures in drug development are extremely costly for pharmaceutical companies and stifle innovation. One solution to this problem may be non-traditional methods such as 3D bioprinting. A functionally representative 3D bioprinted model mimicking a human organ, such as the liver, for example, could expedite drug development by enabling more accurate, non-animal pharmacokinetic studies.
Ben Yass, James Roberts, Iestyn Halford, Max Williamson - members of the 3DPrinting Student Society, Department of Engineering, Cambridge University.
An overview of projects currently being pursued by the next generation of engineers.
