Workshop 5: Recent Advances in 3D Printing of Biomaterials

Timeslot: Wednesday, April 27, 2022 - 10:00am to 12:00pm
Room: Harborside Ballroom A-B, 4th Floor


Academic, government, and industrial researchers have examined the use of 3D printing technologies to overcome the limitations associated with conventional manufacturing technologies. These technologies involve processing of three-dimensional structures via additive joining of materials in a layer-by-layer manner. This workshop will consider recent developments in 3D printing technologies for processing biomaterials into artificial tissues as well as biosensors, drug delivery devices, and medical instruments. Several topics related to 3D printing, including processing of radiographic images, development of computer models, novel 3D printing technologies, and novel materials for use in 3D printing, will be discussed. This workshop will facilitate collaboration and discussion among the many groups involved in the development and use of 3D printing technologies, including biomaterials engineers, medical device manufacturers, and clinicians. We anticipate that this workshop will facilitate future research activities, including industry-university collaborations involving 3D printing of biomaterials for use in medicine, surgery, and dentistry.


Abstracts will be available for download on April 27, 2022.
