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.

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.

Prosperos is a 4 year, 4.5M€ project, focussed on developing the next generation of 3D printed implants. The project is funded by the Interreg V Flanders – the Netherlands program. A lot was learned about the technology, the application, and hurdles towards introduction of these implants into the clinic. During this presentation we would like to share the (preliminary) results and the most important lessons learned.

When one is in «good health», it is often difficult to realize how much health is a treasure that we must preserve as long as we are alive. When one is deprived of it, one has the feeling of being completely deprived of freedom.

Digitalization in the medical field opens up new opportunities for personalized pharmaceuticals as well. 3D Printing techniques are creating great opportunities for personalised drug delivery systems. Drug dosage form production and manufacture will be dramatically changed once the problems of right materials and regulatory issues are solved. But what is the current status? Where are we now, what are the most challenging issues we are confronted with and what are the next steps?

3D printing & digital technology have been gaining grounds in the dental practice in the recent years. Additive technologies, such as DLP are widely used to build, starting from digital files, dental models in addition to orthodontic and prosthetic devices. 3D printed patient specific implants are used more and more in clinical cases. The start-up Lake3D wants to develop the first 3D Dental printer based on Multi Material 3D inkjet.
