Symposium on 3D Printing for Life Sciences 2022
The “3D Printing for Life Sciences” symposium is providing an insight into current state of the art of 3D Printing in various disciplines of Life Sciences. It offers a platform for stakeholders and researchers from pharmaceutical and medical device industry as well as interested clinicians to exchange themselves with dedicated experts in 3D Printing.
3D Printing – also known as “Additive Manufacturing” has been used in Life Sciences for several decades. It all started with simple surgical bone models almost 30 years ago and went over to 3D printed metal or ceramic implants in the recent decades as well as 3D bioprinting for tissue engineering.
But what comes next? What are upcoming applications in clinical daily routine, or in medical device industry? Could we someday print body parts like joints or even organs? Is Additive Manufacturing entering any other Life Sciences applications? What if the technology becomes cheaper and easier accessible? What if end-users become producers of medical devices? Do we face any specific legal problems?
