Moroni Lab – Largest European 3D bioprinting program launched by Maastricht University, Brightlands Materials Center

3D bioprinting program

Moroni Lab – Largest European 3D bioprinting program launched by Maastricht University, Brightlands Materials Center. It looks like Maastricht University is rapidly becoming one of Europe’s key centers for medical 3D printing efforts. Just this month, they spearheaded the new €4.6 million PRosPERoS project for 3D printed joint implant development, while researchers from Maastricht’s Moroni lab pioneered 3D bioprinted scaffolds that control stem cell differentiation.

Low Cost 3D Printed Biomedical Prototypes, Unveiled by Italian Open BioMedical Initiative

No 3D printing innovation is more important or revolutionary than a medical one, and in that respect we are very happy to learn of some new fantastic designs by a young Italian nonprofit organization. Called Open BioMedical Initative, this group of volunteers has spent the last year or so working on and perfecting 3D printable designs for low cost medical solutions. At the Maker Faire Rome 2015, they have unveiled three of their creations: a prosthetic hand and  a low-cost bionic version, and even a 3D printed BOB incubator for newborn babies.
