Frankenstein 101: How to 3D Print a Human Body… or at least the Heart
Mentor: Dr. Molly Welsh
How does the growth of technology advance the field of medicine? In this talk, I use the example of artificial organs, a key tool in the fight against life-threatening conditions, to introduce a clinical application for 3D printing technologies. An in-depth analysis of the current state of organ transplants and artificial organs is used to argue that new solutions are needed to combat organ shortages and downsides to existing solutions for organ transplants. 3D printed organs are the future of medical transplants and will allow more patients to have access to life-saving treatments.
