What should I look out for at 3DHEALS 2020?

Here are my highlights from the agenda for 3DHEALS 2020 so far, along with key 3DMedNet content to help you prepare for each session!

1. Material science in healthcare 3D printing, 10:00–11:00 [PST], 5 June. Mike Vasquez (3Degrees, CA, USA), Steve Kranz (Origin, CA, USA), Sean Dsilva (Henkel, Dusseldorf, Germany) and Balaji Prabhu (Evonik Industries, Essen, Germany) lead this session, comprised of four subsessions including discussions on bioresorbable materials for 3D printing medical implants, the adaptability of start-ups and switching focus in a time of coronavirus.
