Tailoring the future healthcare, from precision drugs to printing bodies

September 6th 2018 3d Printingevents

After the first multi-stakeholder workshop “Innovation with and for society” held in Bologna on 20th April and the second event “Responsible Citizen Innovation” organized in Milan on 21st June, the third multistakeholder workshop has been planned on 6th September in Pavia.

The event “Tailoring the future healthcare, from precision drugs to printing bodies” is organized by Fondazione Giannino Basssetti.

Thanks to the convergence of different technologies, in the near future it will be possible to print and replace individual parts of our body as well as designing and producing tailored medical devices and objects or even drugs, according to personal health and genome data. What are the challenges and the opportunities? In this context, how is the healthcare landscape changing, where new professionals, citizen-innovators and patients have a key and relevant role? What are the new places in which health innovation is becoming a responsible and distributed process?
The workshop will revolve around these open questions, to be explored by an international line-up, presenting their experiences in such realm:

Genome tests and Precision Medicine. Present and future – Mari Carmen Alvarez, Imegen

Careables – Open Source Hardware in Healthcare  – Marta Savoldelli, Fondazione TOG and EUH2020 MADE4YOU project

The Flagship Project Fab@Hospital: methods and technologies for manufacturing customized, patient specific prostheses in an hospital factory – Ettore Lanzarone, CNR

New professionals and new places in the future healthcare. The EU H2020 SMART-map project experience in 3DMed – Anna Pellizzone, Fondazione Giannino Bassetti

Chair: Angela Simone, Fondazione Giannino Bassetti

The workshop will be performed as a special session within the international scientific conference “3D printing and biomechanics”, promoted by the Italian Digital Biomanufacturing Network and the Italian chapter of the European Society of Biomechanics.
