3D Printing of Microneedles for Drug Delivery, Microfluidics, Porous Tantalum

In this issue of “From Academia”, we include three recent publications introducing innovative ways to deliver drugs. In the first article, the researchers demonstrated 3DMNMEMS, a novel device that combines 3D printing, microneedles (MNs), and Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS). This device allows for versatile and controllable transdermal drug delivery, for example, the delivery of insulin. In the second article, the authors presented a one-step fabrication process of a microfluidic chip for drug dissolution assays based on 3D printing technology. The authors suggest that this method could be a reliable tool for drug release assays during the early research stages. The final publication is a review article focusing on past publications discussing the current applications of 3D-printed porous tantalum (3D-P-p-Ta), a novel drug delivery strategy, in drug delivery systems to repair hard tissue defects, as well as the limitations of existing data and potential future research directions.

“From Academia” features recent, relevant, close to commercialization academic publications. Subjects include but not limited to healthcare 3D printing, 3D bioprinting, and related emerging technologies.
