Three hundred million Hungarian forints will be invested in 3D printing centre in Szeged. The new facility using 3D technology will open at the University of Szeged in the autumn to research the medical applications of 3D printing. The university, a national leader in the application of this technology, has set itself the goal to further encourage and expand the use of 3D printing among researchers and to increase and develop the services related to the tools it offers.
Thanks to the funding, partly provided by the European Union, it will be possible to produce metal and polymer medical devices and biological structures, to study and develop their characteristics. “We want to create an infrastructure background for research, education and development of tailor-made medicine," said Ferenc Bari, the project's professional manager. According to the professor at the Institute of Medical Physics and Medical Informatics at the University of Szeged, with the development of spatial printing technology, customizable, integrated tissue organ construction will open up new paths for science and could provide previously unimaginable solutions for treating patients.
The aim of the project is to support implantology, to further develop the methodology of metal printing and surface treatment, print biological tissues, and create the possibility of joint replacement of cartilage.
