On June 7th AET Labs, along with our partners from Stratasys, kicked off our 3DP Healthcare Solutions Series with a medical roadshow at the Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC) in the heart of Boston’s financial district.

We’d like to express a heartfelt note of thanks to all who attended our Medical Innovations in 3D Printing seminar. It was a sincere pleasure to share this unique evening with you discussing the many ways 3DP technology is advancing areas of surgical planning and research and look forward to providing the healthcare community continued relevant content.

The evening began with lively conversation and networking over craft beers, fine wines and eclectic light fare and concluded with an enlightening open-panel discussion.

We are extremely grateful to our distinguished guest speaker Dr. Albert Woo, Chief of Pediatric Plastic Surgery and Director of the Craniofacial Program at RIH/Hasbro Children’s Hospital, for his informative presentation sharing his expertise utilizing 3DP technology to prepare for complex reconstruction surgeries.
