Partnership Advances Medical Uses of 3D Printing

Updated June 16, 2016

Articles about a new partnership between the Jacobs Institute and a major 3D printer company to advance the use of the emerging technology in medicine, particularly in neurosurgery, quote Adnan Siddiqui, MD, PhD, vice chair and professor of neurosurgery; Ciprian N. Ionita, PhD, research assistant professor of biomedical engineering and neurosurgery; and Vijay S. Iyer, MD, PhD, associate professor of medicine.

“The new materials and colors mean we can produce highly sophisticated 3D anatomical replicas to accelerate product testing, research and advanced training,” Siddiqui said.
