3D printing requires scientists to be creative and push past boundaries. The best approach is to have no boundaries. This is what both Professor Dietmar Hutmacher and Professor Michael Breadmore and their teams do every day.

Professor Hutmacher works at the Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation, Queensland University of Technology, where he directs the Centre in Regenerative Medicine and the Australian Research Council Centre in Additive Bio-manufacturing, leading a multidisciplinary team of researchers including engineers, cell biologists, polymer chemists, clinicians, and veterinary surgeons. Dietmar is an internationally recognised leader in the fields of biomaterials, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine with expertise in commercialization.

Professor Michael Breadmore and his team at the University of Tasmania are developing ‘lab-on-a-chip’ portable analytical devices that allow users to put a sample in and get an answer out on the spot. These devices have the potential to revolutionise clinical, forensic, environmental and industrial applications.

Together they will present their work and how it is changing how scientists work and how their work is changing how things are done.
