About the course

The course introduces the possibilities and opportunities that 3D printing and bioprinting offer researchers and innovators within medicine, biology and biochemistry. The course starts with lectures, 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.
