Who are the key contributors to the OM3DP Hub?
3D LifePrints Ltd (3DLP) is an SME that provides medical 3D printing manufacturing and service capabilities for key UK NHS hospitals and academic institutions. 3DLP partners with clinicians, healthcare providers and academics to identify new applications of 3D technologies and provide a variety of innovative 3D printed products in order to reduce operational costs, enhance patient care and improve medical training.
Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences (NDS) have contributed to the set-up of OM3DLP to encourage the use of 3D printing at Oxford University. One of its stated aims for the Hub is to bring together the many medical and engineering specialisations that may wish to engage with medical 3D printing and enable their collaboration on a range of 3D printing projects.
Oxford Biomedical Research Centre (BRC3) Cross-thematic funding. A generous grant from BRC3 has contributed pump-prime funding to enable the OM3DP. This is led by Mr Ben Turney, Dr Julian Dye, Professor Lionel Tarrasenko, Professor Andy Carr & Professor Freddie Hamdy.
Department of Engineering Science, Institute of Biomedical Engineering (IBME) have supported the establishing of the OM3DLP to bring together biomedical materials and engineering design research to develop surgical device technologies and lead the future development of bio-resporbable implants.
Nuffield Department of Orthopaedics, Rheumatology and Musculoskeletal Sciences (NDORMS) have kindly provided a location for the Hub in The Botnar Research Centre with sufficient space for the 3D printers and associated hardware. The facility has been established by Professor Jonathan Rees and Professor Andrew Carr.
