APN Workshop

Advances in 3D Printing Technology for Medical and Biological Applications Conference

18th November 2014 10:00 - 16:00

Zienkiewicz Lecture Theatre - Swansea University

This IOP PGS conference is intended as a forum for industry and academia to present their interests, expertise and resources in 3D printing for medical and biological applications. With key themes which focus on the printing of biomaterials for the following applications:

  • Substitution of human tissue
  • Assisted healing/smart wound care
  • Outside body tissue biofabrication
  • 3D Printing for Health Care

The issues of new functional materials, manufacturing methods using 3D printing-based technologies and new applications of 3D Printing for biological/biomedical applications will be discussed. This conference will offer the opportunity of networking with numerous academic experts and industry representatives. Delegates will be treated to new research findings and information that will benefit both industry and the research community.

This event is organised by the IOP Printing and Graphics Science Group (PGS) in collabrations with LIMNet, the Advancing Printing Network and the Welsh Centre for Printing and Coating.
