3DHeals is a San Francisco Bay Area-based International community, aiming at connecting healthcare professionals, entrepreneurs, developers, designers, and regulators that are interested in healthcare-related 3D printing technology. It is the world’s largest community of its kind, having events all over North/ South America, Asia, Europe and Australia. This community helps build a platform for both collaborative research and education in 3D printing technology.
The meeting in September is the very first 3DHeals community event in Taiwan. The goal is not only to connect the local community but also to link talented teams with the world.

Jenny Chen, MD
Dr. Jenny Chen is a Neuroradiologist at Stanford University Hospital. She is also the founder of 3DHeals, the world’s largest educational community for researchers, entrepreneurs, clinicians, and regulators who are doing healthcare-focused 3D printing technology.
She received her MD degree at UCLA Medical School, completed her residency at UCLA Medical Center and Neuroradiology fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital.
Jui-Yu Chen, MD
Dr. Jui-Yu Chen is an attending surgeon at the Division of General Surgery, Taipei Veterans General Hospital and a director at Taiwan Association of Endocrine Surgeons. He completed his research fellowship at the Division of Endocrine Surgery at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Hospital and Columbia University Medical Center. His excellence in thyroid surgery has helped tens of thousands of patients. He has never stopped the pursuit of improving clinical outcome. He introduced Transoral thyroidectomy which is a surgery that can remove pathologic thyroid through the incision in the mouth, keeping the surgical scar invisible. This procedure is highly technical dependent. Dr. Chen is optimizing the outcome and lowering the complication rate of this surgery by creating innovative devices through 3D design and printing technology.
Chen received his bachelor degree of Medicine from Taipei Medical University, Taipei, Taiwan.
