3DMedLIVE 2019: find out more

Are you a surgeon looking for a way to bring 3D printing into your surgical planning, training or patient consent? Are you a healthcare professional with questions about the manufacturing and regulation of patient-specific implants? Or a start-up wanting to connect with clinicians?

In response to calls to bring together surgeons, radiologists, biomedical engineers, 3D printing technicians, medical modellers and healthcare professionals, with regulators, engineers, start-ups and suppliers, we have launched 3DMedLIVE in partnership between 3DMedNet and the Journal of 3D Printing in Medicine. This new event aims to convene all members of the community who, together, can take 3D printing in surgical practice to the next level, and make it an everyday reality in many hospitals.

Over two days, we’ll hear case studies directly from pioneering surgeons and researchers who are already utilising this technology in their practice, plus panel discussions and roundtables with regulators, manufacturers and funders. Leave the PowerPoint at home: 3DMedLIVE is dynamic, conversation-led and solution-focused, with the patient at the heart.

As well as providing a platform for the presentation and discussion of scientific ideas, offering the opportunity to connect with other innovators is core to the mission of 3DMedLIVE. In line with the ethos of 3DMedNet, communication is key to progressing this field, so over the two days there will be plenty of opportunities to network, meet new contacts and – of course – enjoy a drink at the 3DMedLIVE Cocktail Party!
