|On-Site Speaker (Planned)
This presentation will provide global perspective on the subject with a special emphasis on current efforts to address many of the Indian challenges. In particular reference to our ongoing multi-institutional center of excellence on biomaterials, I will thereafter present some of our recent results to demonstrate the efficacy of the 3D powder printing to fabricate the Ti6Al4V-based metallic as well as Calcium Phosphate (CaP)-based ceramic scaffolds. A major emphasis will be placed on the binder formulation, post-processing treatment, and micro-computed tomography of interconnected porous architecture. The challenges in fabricating the patient-specific implants using 3D powder printing route as well as the myriad of opportunities for future research in this emerging field will be highlighted. This presentation will conclude with the speaker’s thoughts on translational research and interdisciplinary academic programs for young researchers, while blending sufficient knowledge of biological systems with engineering sciences to develop next generation biomedical materials.
