Seminar: Application of Novel 3D Titanium Printing in Regenerative Medicine in Oral and Maxillofacial Regions

Event Details

Date: Wednesday, 25 March 2015
12:00pm - 1:00pm
Venue: Room 502, Advanced Engineering Building
Speaker: Dr. Nghiem Doan
Event Description: 
The application of 3D bio- printing in human has come a long way, especially in the Oral and maxillofacial (OMF) region. OMF region comprises of the face, jaws, the head, neck, and their associated hard and soft tissues. Currently, there have been significant developments in regenerative medicine, especially in the area of 3D titanium printing. Virtually entirely complaints of the oral and maxillofacial region could be study focuses of regenerative medicine. Therapy in this area has been very proven utilizing regenerative medicine in conjunction with titanium. The capacity to replicate profiles using novel 3D printed titanium multifunctional frameworks, cellular technologies, growth factors, biomaterials, stem cells, microsurgery, and other is a major mile stone of achievement in the discipline of Oral & Maxillofacial reconstruction. Presently, there has been an exponential increase in both basic and translational research in 3D titanium printing. The prospective application of novel 3D titanium printing in OMF regenerative medicine is encouraging and is deserve further research.
