Grand Valley State University’s applied Medical Device Institute (aMDI) has been awarded $500,000 by the Grand Rapids SmartZone to study the use of specialized 3D printing technology for medical device production.
The grant will allow the Grand Rapids, Michigan-based institute, along with contract manufacturer MediSurge (Grand Rapids) and 3D printing company Carbon (Redwood City, Calif.) to create production-grade, implantable medical devices, which isn’t currently possible due to existing materials used for prototyping. The institute has a new Carbon 3D printer.
At DeviceTalks Boston, Tyler Shultz will give attendees an inside look at Theranos and how he was able to sound the alarm after he realized the company was falling apart. Shultz will take attendees behind the story that everyone is talking about: the rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes and her diagnostic company, Theranos.
Join Shultz and 1,000+ medical device professionals at the 8th annual DeviceTalks Boston.
