About Future Science Group
Founded in 2001, Future Science Group is a scientific publisher focused on breakthrough medical, biotechnological and scientific research. Originally, this meant publishing scholarly journals and eBooks – we publish 34 peer-reviewed journals and have published over 300 eBooks – focused on up-and-coming, hi-tech areas of science that touch medicine. Key titles include Epigenomics, Immunotherapy, Regenerative Medicine, Nanomedicine and the Journal of Comparative Effectiveness Research.
By covering breakthrough areas, early in their development, we provide a focal point around which communities can convene. And so, in more recent years, we have launched eCommunity websites fed by news, video, webinars and other engaging content to provide a more complete resource for researchers and practitioners. Popular sites include RegMedNet, Bioanalysis Zone and The Evidence Base® – all closely partnered with their corresponding long-established scholarly journals.
Over time our products have evolved, but our overarching mission remains constant: to publish and curate robust, trustworthy content, and unite communities to advance science and medicine. Given this, we were excited to launch a new wing of Future Science Group, Future Science Events. As with all our content, the purpose of these events is to bring meaningful, outcome-led events, which support and enhance the progression of their respective fields.
Our first event, 3DMedLIVE 2019, took place in October 2019 and was accredited by the Royal College of Surgeons of England. 3DMedLIVE focuses on surgical applications of 3D printing, uniquely bringing together the community of surgeons, technicians, manufacturers, regulators and more, to share case stories and practical expertise in order to help drive this field forward. Powered by Future Science Events, 3DMedLIVE is hosted by the Journal of 3D Printing in Medicine and e-community 3DMedNet.
Our other events include Real-World Evidence: Rare Diseases and Innovative Therapies, with the inaugural event taking place in April 2020. You can find out more about RWE 2020 here.
Testimonials from past events:
“The team running the event could not have been more helpful and it was clear that they all had a passion for what they were doing. The team actually made the event better through the positive ‘vibe’ that they created. As someone who attends a huge number of conferences, I have not come across this before and the atmosphere that you all created was exceptionally enjoyable to be part of.” – Tim Brown, Surgeon, speaker at 3DMedLIVE 2019
“Events like this are essential to really step forward in the next industrial revolution.” – Giuseppe Isu, Medics 3D, Sponsor at 3DMedLIVE 2019
“Thanks again for involving us at the 3D event last week. I had a great time and the content was excellent!” – Paul Barrett, Materialise, sponsor at 3DMedLIVE 2019
“Thank you for all the work you put in to the event… From our point of view it was both enjoyable and worthwhile. We are following up with several of the contacts we made and hoping some new business will come out of it.” – Henry Pinchbeck, 3D Life Prints, sponsor at 3DMedLIVE 2019
3DMedNet is a community site that unites the diverse 3D printing in medicine community, seeking to educate and inspire to help this exciting field move forward at an even faster rate.

About the Journal of 3D Printing in Medicine
Editor-in-Chief: Dietmar Hutmacher
3D printing, or additive manufacturing, is the process of making a 3D object from a digital file. 3D printing has been in use for several years in certain areas such as manufacturing, and the aerospace and automotive industries. Excitingly, 3D printing, and the related field of 3D bioprinting, is now being used in increasingly advanced ways in healthcare, allowing new levels of precision, personalization and cost efficiency.
Published by Future Medicine, the Journal of 3D Printing in Medicine (ISSN: 2059-4755) is a peer-reviewed, print and electronic journal poised at the brink of an exciting new era in healthcare. Encompassing all aspects of bioprinting and 3D printing of relevance to medicine, the journal provides a forum for research, review and commentary in a fast-moving, inter-disciplinary research area.
