The National Center for Advancing Translational Science (NCATS) within the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will lead a discussion on 3-D printing advancements and its application to biomedical research. NCATS will discuss such cutting-edge research as tissue engineering, bioprinting and prototyping. They also will explore the complex challenges the technology presents, including speed and scale, complex cellular composition, and the difficulty of connecting blood supply to nerve and printed tissue.
Members of the public may attend in person. More information is available via the NCATS website.
