4D Printing: From the “Ink” to the Medical Device

October 27, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The UW School of Medicine Department of Bioengineering Allan S. Hoffman Endowed Lecture presents Daniel Cohn, PhD, professor in the Institute of Chemistry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, for a lecture on 3D printing. Cohn’s research interests focus on the design, synthesis and analysis of implantable polymeric biomaterials, as well as the engineering of medical devices, with special emphasis on biodegradable polymers, 3D-printed medical systems, shape memory-displaying polymers, in situ generated implants and “smart” medical devices.

After briefly reviewing the rapidly expanding field of 3D printing, this lecture will focus on the tailoring of functional printable molecules (“inks”) that perform as the basic building blocks of the architectures printed. The “inks” to be introduced differ in their composition, mechanical properties and functionality, allowing the optimal design of personalized, multifunctional 3D-printed medical devices.

Register in advance to attend virtually or join the in-person event in Foege Auditorium.
