Is printing a knee really any different than printing a drug? The regulatory strategies are identical. Interested in 3D printing applications in medicine; not just what we are doing today but what we could be doing in the future and how do we get there? For example, can we 'print' medical devices? Can we 'print' permanent implants? Can we 'print' combination products? Can we 'print' drugs (i.e., new molecular entities)? Can we 'print' living tissue? What are the technical and regulatory challenges these new technologies pose? Using case studies from a variety of clinical specialties, all of these and more will be discussed in this interactive session. Strategies for using regulation as a competitive advantage will also be explored.
