  • PhD Scholarship - 3D Printed Orthopaedic Implants

    A fully funded PhD scholarship is available at the University of Otago, in Christchurch, New Zealand. A link to the detailed advert is here, http://www.otago.ac.nz/bioengineerin...ago037854.html and as an attachment.

    The project undertake the development of a commercially viable additively manufactured (AM) implant using the latest medical printing (EBM and DMP titanium alloy) and tissue engineering concepts (polymers and bio-inks with cells and biologics). A strong focus on the engineering design process and hands-on validation. Core involvement with an initial translational large animal study (AS1, 2016) to evaluate manufacturing options followed by a pre-clinical evaluation of the device (AS2, 2017). Generate novel data and submit publications to international journals and conferences. Ultimately developing a next-generation orthopaedic/tissue engineering solution for clinical translation.Undertake the development of a commercially viable additively manufactured (AM) implant using the latest medical printing (EBM and DMP titanium alloy) and tissue engineering concepts (polymers and bio-inks with cells and biologics).
