SelectBIO presents 3D-Printing in the Life Sciences 2019, taking place October 14-15, 2019 on Coronado Island/San Diego, California.

The interest around 3D-printing has risen spectacularly within the last few years. With continued progress, it has the potential to revolutionize the life sciences the advances in 3D printing and bioprinting technology have expansive applications in surgery, personalized medicine, diagnostics, and drug discovery.

This conference will look at a wide range of technologies, applications and methodologies within the 3D printing in the life sciences space. With a well-known track record for delivering high-quality agendas, this event will include talks from some of the world's foremost innovators in materials, applications, digital dentistry, scaffolds, cell containing constructs and tissue regeneration, and tissue engineering.

Posters from delegates are welcomed as a means to disseminate the most up-to-date research and commercial applications which complement the presentations from the leaders in these fields.

This conference is part of a multi-conference event with the following co-located and concurrent tracks:
  • Organ-on-a-Chip World Congress 2019
  • 3D-Culture and Organoids 2019
  • Stem Cells in Drug Discovery Tox & Organoids 2019
  • 3D-Printing in the Life Sciences 2019
  • The Space Summit 2019
Registered delegates receive full access to all the co-located events for maximal scientific exchange and networking and the exhibit hall is co-located and common to all tracks enabling engagement with companies in these fields displaying novel technologies, tools, products and service offerings.
