Esther Valliant

Esther Valliant’s research over the last fifteen years has focused principally on biomaterials for hard tissue applications and the development of new medical devices. Highlights include improving the mechanical properties of bioactive glass by forming a flexible hybrid, developing an osteoconductive PMMA-free orthopedic cement for spinal surgery. She has authored of over 16 peer-reviewed journal articles, an inventor of a patent for an internal medical device and a reviewer for two scientific journals. She earned her undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering from Queen’s University (Kingston, Canada), her PhD in Material Science from Imperial College London (London, UK), and completed a post-doctoral fellowship in Biomedical Engineering at Dalhousie University (Halifax, Canada).

Bryan Scheer

Bryan Scheer, M.D. is a Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon. Dr.Scheer received his medical degree at the University of Nevada and completed his orthopedics residency at the University of Oklahoma. After more than ten years of practice in rural hospitals, he co-founded inReach Healthcare (fka Rural Partners in Medicine -RPM). InReach’s mission has always been to empower rural hospitals and give them an avenue to provide specialty medical care to their patients. This also opened the door to give some balance to the maldistribution of specialty providers in these small, remote, underserved communities. InReach contracts directly with individual hospitals to keep patients and revenue local. This has positively impacted the physical health and economic viability for these partnering hospitals. Quickly, the demand became larger than what he could individually supply, so he recruited fellow orthopedic surgeons and expanded their scope. InReach has six separate divisions and offers numerous services/specialties in 18 states and over 100 hospitals. Striving to further enhance patient outcomes, Dr. Scheer developed a strong interest in alternative materials and applications for medical use which led to the founding of SiNAPTIC Technologies. SiNAPTIC focuses on Additive Manufacturing of complex and technical ceramics. 3-D printed biomaterials are the cutting edge in performance and improved outcomes but also further improve daily lives through the many uses in industry, electronics, and aerospace/defense. Both inReach and SiNAPTIC are based north of Denver, CO. Dr. Scheer lives full time in Steamboat Springs, CO with his wife Melanie. They share four adult children.

Johann Henckel

Johann is a surgeon and researcher in the field of orthopaedics, working within a multidisciplinary team of engineers, scientists, clinicians and surgeons based at UCL’s Institute of Orthopaedics and the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (RNOH) in London UK. The team runs the world-leading RNOH Implant Science Centre, which investigates the reasons for prosthetic joint failure using advanced metrology tools, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and micro-CT imaging on their large collection of failed orthopaedic implants, including 3D-printed implants retrieved from patients undergoing revision surgery. His research focuses on developing software and hardware solutions to assist orthopaedic surgery, advancing 3D surgical planning and patient-specific instrumentation (PSI), improving the imaging and enhancing the design of bespoke 3D-printed hip implants.
