Imagine having a tool that prints personalized implants from a patient’s own stem cells. Sitting at the intersection of materials science, chemistry, bio- and mechanical engineering, biomedical 3D printing has the potential to revolutionize medicine. Simplified drug development, individualized and patient-specific medical treatment, on-demand tissue structures—all possible through the development of this technology.
But beyond the technology, unresolved questions remain. How will society adapt? How will the medical profession and regulatory framework handle the emergence of this game-changing new technology?
