3DHEALS Boston : Healthcare 3D Printing and Converging Technologies 🗓 🗺


This is our first Boston event for the healthcare 3D printing community. The goal is to allow people with different backgrounds to start a conversation on how to innovate better healthcare applications using 3D printing /bioprinting technologies. The conversation will not only include what influencers are working on but also how other emerging technologies like AR/VR, Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning, and Robotics could be complementary or integrated into H3DP innovations.

Beer and pizza will be provided.

About the Speakers:

Jenny Chen, MD

Jenny is trained as a neuroradiologist, founder/CEO of 3DHEALS, a company focusing on curating healthcare 3D printing ecosystem. Her main interests include medical education,  3D printing in the healthcare sector, and artificial intelligence. She is also a currnt adjunct clinical faculty in the radiology department at Stanford Healthcare.

Sanjay Prabhu, MD

Dr. Sanjay P. Prabhu, MBBS, DCH, FRCR is a Staff Pediatric Neuroradiologist at Boston Children’s Hospital and Assistant Professor of Radiology at the Harvard Medical School in Boston. He serves as the Director of Advanced Image Analysis Lab and Co-Director of SIMPeds3D Print Service at Boston Children’s Hospital.  Dr. Prabhu’s current research interests include high resolution imaging in pediatric patients with epilepsy, brain imaging following sudden death in childhood, value of 3D printing in surgical simulation and developing clinical decision support tools using machine learning.

Ritu Gill, MD

Dr. Ritu R Gill is a clinical radiologist with sub-specialty training in Cardiothoracic and Oncoradiology and a Masters in Public Health (Clinical Effectiveness). She is the Director for Imaging Research, Lung Research Center, Director of thoracic Imaging and Intervention in Advanced Multimodality Imaging operating room (AMIGO) and the Associate Director, Surgical Imaging Innovation, Center for Surgical Innovation at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School. Her interests include building prognostic models to stratify survival in Chest malignancies. She also has an avid interest in 3D and 4D imaging and 3D modeling and printing.

Patrick Thayer, PhD

Patrick Thayer is the Bioink Officer at CELLINK. Before starting at CELLINK he earned his BS from Georgia Tech in Biomedical Engineering and his PhD from Virginia Tech. He has have worked in various research labs on projects ranging from the influence of pathologic mechanical forces on heart valve phenotypes within strain/pressure bioreactor systems to the engineering of composite scaffolds consisting of micro-fiber and hydrogels for connective tissue engineering. Now on the other side, I hope to use my experiences in academia to develop novel tools and materials for any researcher that wants to get involved or is working in the bioprinting field.

Title: Biomaterials and the Future of Medicine

Summary: Patrick will talk about biomaterials and their translation into bioinks for bioprinting and how emerging technologies such as AR, Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning, and Robotics will play a role in the future of bioprinting.

Bryan Sullivan

Bio: Bryan is an Electromechanical and Manufacturing Engineer specializing in Additive Laser Sintering Technologies.  He previously worked with a custom orthopedic implant manufacturer using powder bed additive laser sintering approaches to manufacturing custom plastic and metal implants and cut guides.  He currently works for Methods3D, a subsidiary of Methods Machine Tools.  Methods3D is partnered with 3D Systems and Markforged, offering a full portfolio of additive metal and plastic technologies and working to integrate 3D printing with robotics and machine tools to offer full turnkey manufacturing solutions.

Title: Integrating Additive Manufacturing into the current manufacturing environment.

Presentation Summary: Bryan will talk about where additive technology currently fits into the manufacturing ecosystem and the ancillary processes that are being developed to fully realize the benefits of 3D Printing Technology.
