What is the Australian and Melbourne healthcare 3D Printing/ Bioprinting ecosystem like? Look no further than our Melbourne community manager William Harley, who not only has been keeping a close eye on local trends and happenings but also has a deep understanding of the scientific aspects of the development. In this episode, we learned a little about Bill’s research on acoustic assisted bioprinting, local leaders on the commercial side of healthcare 3D printing, and major funding entities. Of course, we also highlighted the upcoming Melbourne virtual event and How he picked speakers for this event. (Free event, almost sold out.) During the live Q&A session, we talked a little about getting a Ph.D. and being a scientist.
William Harley graduated with honors in medical biotechnology from the University of New South Wales. Currently, he is undertaking a Ph.D. at the University of Melbourne in acoustophoretic bioprinting. Stemming from his research experience in biomaterials, stem cells, and nanofabrication, he is driven by the clinical translation of personalized regenerative medicine. He is passionate about the innovation of 3D printing in healthcare and is determined to orchestrate a series of 3D HEALS events to engage in the Australian community.
