AMBER, the Science Foundation Ireland-funded materials science institute headquartered at Trinity, today announced a new strategic collaboration with Johnson & Johnson Services, Inc. to establish a collaborative laboratory focused on 3D bioprinting.
Research projects will focus initially in orthopaedics and, in the long-term, offer its internal scientific experts as adjunct professors and engage in staff exchanges. The new Global Centre of Excellence for 3D bioprinting will transform healthcare delivery for patients and consumers. It is due to be operational by the end of 2018.
The announcement was welcomed by Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys TD, who said: “Because of the fantastic success of the SFI Research Centre, AMBER, Ireland has a worldwide reputation for excellence in 3D bioprinting and is a global leader in materials science.
