Innovation Forum

Innovation Forum

Innovation Forum programs delve into a cool or disruptive technology or a venture of interest to our audience of entrepreneurs, investors and technology enthusiasts. Led by innovators, thought leaders, researchers, and business luminaries, they often take the form of a panel presentation.

Audience participation is encouraged. As with all MIT Enterprise Forum Northwest events, Innovation Forums provide opportunities for attendees to share advice and network with peers.

3D Bioprinting

 

Imagine. Printing personal implants from a patient's own stem cells. Or reproducing organ functions on laboratories the size of credit cards.

3D printing has the potential to revolutionize medicine.

Sitting at the intersection of materials science, chemistry,and bio- and mechanical engineering, biomedical 3D printing takes a new technology beyond traditional manufacturing and design applications. Simplified drug development, individualized and patient-specific medical treatment, on-demand tissue structures — all possible through the development of this technology.
