The Print On ! event is the first event organized by the 3D printing in healthcare SF meetup group. The conference is to create a robust platform to initiate conversations between the makers/engineering side of 3D printing and the healthcare providers. The ultimate goal is to explore innovative scientific, medical, and business ideas to benefit patients using this amazing new technology. We invite a diverse group of speakers, ranging from healthcare providers, academic researchers, to 3D printing /bioprinting compaines to given the audience a well rounded perspective.

Speaker Bio :

Dr. Jenny Chen is a neuroradiologist, entrepreneur, blogger, founder of this 3D printing in Healthcare group. Her main interest is medical education, and she currently is an adjunct clinical faculty at Stanford Hospital and Clinics. She also tweets avidly about 3D printing, artificial intelligence, big data, and digital health.

Dr. Angela Walker is a Dermatologist with interests in technology and healthcare startups.  She currently works for a virtual services provider – Direct Dermatology, Kaiser, and interns at Health Evolution Summit – a corporate group organizing networking among healthcare leaders, investors, policy-makers, and innovators.  She saw potential medical benefits of 3D printing firsthand when traveling to Haiti for earthquake relief services.  She is happy to discuss medical implications of this exciting technology.

Mr. Eythor Bender is the CEO of UNYQ, which designs 3D printed non-invasive medical wearables. UNYQ’s first product is a line of prosthetic covers that give amputees stylish options and restore body symmetry. Eythor previously served as CEO of Ekso Bionics and President of Ossur, a global leader in lower limb technologies. Most recently, UNYQ and 3D SYSTEMS announced their partnership in future prosthetics and orthotics innovations.

“From Sticks to Style: Restoring Symmetry & Confidence for Amputees with 3D Printing In the last 20 years, we’ve made huge technical leaps in prosthetic innovation. Amputees can now climb mountains and compete in the Olympics thanks to new advancements such as bionic knees and state-of-the-art feet. Yet, the end result looks more like a stick than a leg. This talk will cover how 3D printing has opened doors to a new era of prosthetics and the psychosocial impact it has on amputees.”

Dr. Yaser Shanjani is currently a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Stanford University since completing his Ph.D. and postdoctoral research at the University of Waterloo. With a background in mechanical and Mechatronics Engineering, his research is focused on additive manufacturing technologies for orthopaedic applications, particularly musculoskeletal tissue engineering. Yaser has developed three variations of novel additive manufacturing techniques and 3D bioprinting systems, and contributed to several patents, journal papers, conference proceedings, and book chapters in the field of additive manufacturing.

Additive Manufacturing in Regenerative Orthopaedics. Additive Manufacturing (AM) is opening new frontiers in regenerative medicine, particularly in the development of next generation of musculoskeletal treatment strategies and orthopaedic implants. This presentation addresses some novel AM techniques for tissue engineering of orthopaedic implants including biphasic (cartilage and bone) constructs as osteochondral graft substitutes and vascularised porous scaffolds for treatment of segmental bone defects. The advantages of the AM-made constructs compared to conventionally-produced implants for regeneration of defective site will be explained.”

Kurt Dudley is the Chief Operating Officer of Orange Maker, a California based high-resolution additive manufacturing company. With his history of research in 3D printing and photopolymer materials, Kurt currently leads a robust team of multi-disciplinary engineers to develop and commercialize heliolithographic hardware / software systems, and develop advanced materials for a range of applications including biocompatible and organic 3D printing.

“Innovating The Next generation of 3D Printing Systems and Materials for Bio-Compatible Applications. As a passionate expert and innovator in 3D printing, Dudley will provide his insights to the group about what major breakthroughs are on the horizon in biomedical printing applications. He will discuss the process of creatively overcoming technical barriers to advance the state of the art for additive manufacturing, envisioning the next generation of high-resolution UV curing 3D printing systems, creating world-changing opportunities for the medical industry.”
