Less Than One Week to Register for Additive Manufacturing Strategies Summit on 3D Printing in Medicine and Dentistry
Without exception, medicine and dentistry affect everyone – and that means that 3D printing affects everyone. The technology is becoming such a part of the medical and dental industries that sooner or later, everyone who has a medical or dental concern find themselves acquainted with 3D printing – whether it’s through a 3D printed implant or prosthetic, a 3D printed surgical guide or medical model, or even a patch of 3D printed skin. To discuss the present and future of 3D printing in the medical and dental industries, last year 3DPrint.com and SmarTech Markets Publishing hosted a new kind of conference – the Additive Manufacturing Strategies Summit, focused exclusively on 3D printing in medicine and dentistry.
A lot can change in a year. New technologies have arisen, existing technologies have been further developed, and many medical and dental procedures have used 3D printing for the first time. So 3DPrint.com and SmarTech are hosting the summit again, taking place next week over three days. From January 29th to 31st, medical and dental professionals, 3D printing experts, and representatives from business, government and academia will gather in Boston to discuss what is happening in 3D printing, medicine and dentistry right now – and what will be happening in both the near and distant future.
This year, there are separate medical and dental tracks, both with speakers and panels to cover every part of the respective industries. Panel topics include 3D printing in veterinary medicine, bioprinting, implants and prosthetics, and more. Last week we listed several of the speakers who are lined up to give presentations and participate in panels. Here are some more:
- Carolyn de Vasto, Global Vice President of Communications, BIOMODEX
- Matthew Fiedler, Head of Engineering, re:3D
- Brian Gainey, General Manager, Carbon
- Matt Griffin, Director of Community, Ultimaker North America
- Oleksandra Korutchuk, Business Development Manager, BASF
- Joseph Lipman, Director of Device Development, Hospital for Special Surgery
- Dr. Michelle Oblak, Veterinary Surgical Oncologist, University of Guelph’s Ontario Veterinary College
- Patrick Thayer, Bioink Officer, CELLINK
- Kim Torlumemke, Vice President – Quality and Regulatory, Healthcare, 3D Systems
- Sam Wainwright, Dental Product Manager, Formlabs
There are still more experts lined up to speak at the summit; the only issue for attendees will be deciding who to see at what time. There will also be a start-up competition, which is not to be missed, as some of the newest and most exciting organizations in the medical and dental sector will be competing for a $15,000 investment. Registration for the summit is open now, and if you register by January 24th you will get 25% off. There are several options for registration; a Gold passport which gains you entry to everything in the entire conference; a Silver passport which gains you entry to everything except for the workshops on January 29th; or a one-day Seminar pass only, plus several other options you can check out here.
