3D Printing of Drugs
In this 90-minutes virtual event, we invite everyone to meet international world-class experts and entrepreneurs in the space of 3D printing of Drugs to showcase and update technological advances and high-value applications in this nascent and unique space. Leveraging design freedom of 3D printing and the latest research findings in pharmaceutical material science research, further optimization, and personalization medication/formulation is within arm’s reach. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to directly engage with us on this subject. Meet Aprecia, CraftHealth, FabRx, Triastek.
Anna Worsley joined FabRx in May 2021 as a Senior Formulation Scientist. Prior to this she completed her PhD in Biomaterials for Diabetic Chronic Wounds at The Royal Veterinary College and University College London (UCL), her MSc in Nanotechnology and Regenerative Medicine from UCL, and her BSc in Anatomy and Human Biology from The University of Liverpool. During her PhD, Anna completed two internships in industry as a medical writer and R&D chemist. She also obtained a place on the Medtech Superconnector Programme, offering business training and additional funding for project continuation after her PhD.
