About the course

The course introduces the possibilities and opportunities that 3D-printing and bioprinting offers researchers and innovators within medicine, biology and biochemistry. The course starts with lectures about 3D-printing and bioprinting, followed by mandatory workshops on 3D-modeling and practical 3D-printing, together with the execution of a smaller supervised individual project relevant to a research application within medicine, biology or biochemistry. The project work processes as well as results are documented in an individual report.
