In focus: applications in neuro R&D
Hear from the experts as 3DMedNet discusses the use of 3D printing in neuro-based disciplines, from the bioprinting of neural tissues to the use of 3D printing in affordable neurological care.
There are many neurological conditions for which treatments and even preventative measures are yet to enter a clinical pipeline. Even modern imaging technologies fail to present fully accurate pictures and ideas for how the brain works at the level required for extensive research and development strategies – there is a long way to go before scientists can claim to fully understand the brain and all its mechanisms.
Throughout neuroscience R&D and neurological care, however, there are areas benefiting from 3D printing and bioprinting technologies. In this feature, we interview scientists and clinicians working with 3D printing to improve their standard practice. From carefully engineered neural tissues to personalized solutions for complex spinal surgeries, we aim to bring you a 360⁰ perspective of 3D printing in the neuro space.
