Jet mixing: towards continuous production of core-shell particles for biomedical selective laser sintering

Marica Malenica

Marica Malenica, PhD student, University of Nottingham will demo her project at 3D Medical Conference & Expo

The aim of my project is to develop a platform for continuous production of core-shell particles and to exploit the platform to create polymeric core-shell particles which can be used in selective laser sintering of biomedical products.

3D Printed Polymeric Implants For Drug Therapy

Athina Liaskoni

Athina Liaskoni, PhD student, University of Nottingham will demo her project at 3D Medical Conference & Expo

Conventional drug delivery systems, tablets, capsules, and solutions, can be limited for the treatment of some diseases. Their necessary frequent administration can be unpleasant to patients and their compliance can be reduced. Sustained release implants can offer a solution and 3D printing a novel method of manufacture of such devices.

Glimpse into the future: 3D printing for breast reconstruction, microrobotics, regenerative medicine, bionic prosthetics & more

Currently there are no retinal tissue engineered grafts for clinical applications. But PhD students at Politecnico di Milano are about to change that. They are working at a project aiming to design functional retinal tissue that could be implanted in patients suffering from age-related macular degeneration.

Currently, the most affordable myoelectric bionic prosthetics cost more than $10,000. But Augment Bionics is going to change that. They are developing software and manufacturing methods that will ultimately reduce production costs and the patient-clinician contact time.

New biomaterials

Andrea Alice Konta

Andrea Alice Konta, Doctoral Researcher, University of Nottingham, will demo her project at 3D Medical Conference & Expo

The aim of the project is to produce new biomaterials in order to expand the library of materials available for two photon polymerisation – a 3D printing technique that allows printing complex structures at the micro and nanoscales – and then use them to manufacture a biomedical device capable of sustained drug release for wet – Age Related Macular Degeneration.

Reactive extrusion 3D printing

yuyang wu

Yuyang Wu, PhD student | Centre for Additive Manufacturing, AMIChemE , will demo his project at 3D Medical Conference & Expo

Reactive extrusion 3D printing is a process, whereby two feeds are mixed and deposited onto the platform. In-situ reaction bonds the layers through cross-linking. This technology improves the interlayer adhesion, mitigate the thermal distortion and provides faster print speed.
