Researchers develop 3D medicinal implant

August 10, 2018

Researchers at the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) and The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) are developing a 3D printed implant that can deliver a personalised dose of medicine for the treatment of infections as well as ailments such as arthritis, cancer and AIDS.

Led by Albert Zwiener of SwRI’s Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Division and Dr Lyle Hood of UTSA’s College of Engineering, the project is supported by a grant of $125,000 from the Connecting through Research Partnerships programme.
