A new PhD course (fakultetsgemensam forskarutbildningskurs) on “3D printing for biomedical materials” is going to start from the second week of November (v46-v49).

The general objectives of this course are to overview the state-of-art of 3D printing in the biomaterial field and introduce present techniques. From this course, you could get the knowledge of 3D printing in biomaterials. You will know the key steps in 3D printing from design to printing. You would know the challenges and regulatory issues in the biomedical applications of 3D printing.

Lectures will cover:

Introduction: 3D printing for biomaterials; Insight of additive manufacturing in the orthopaedic market; 3D printing of ceramics/metal for biomedical application; 3D printing of polymers for biomedical application;  Intellectual property and commercialisation; 3D-printing with high spatial resolution; 3D geometry and medical image processing; Additive manufacturing of personalised medications

Part of the lectures will be shared from the PhD course given by U-PRINT (Olle Eriksson and Johan Kreuger). We will also have guest lectures from GE, SU and NFM (UU).

Contact Dr. Wei Xia at the Div. Applied Materials Science, Department of Engineering Sciences for more details.
