1st Pharmaceutics Webinar

3D Printing in Pharmaceutics and Personalized Medicine

The 3D printing process patented in 1986; however, only in the last decade has it been used for medical applications, as well as being utilised in the fields of biofabrication and pharmaceutical printing. The additive manufacturing term involves many processes, which use different types of printing technologies, hundreds of materials, and various resolutions and speeds. 3D printing allows the manufacturing of complex drug delivery devices, and with innovations in pharmaceutical development and an interdisciplinary approach to finding newer drug-delivery systems, can usher in a new era of treatments to various diseases. This Webinar will present some new development in 3D Printing for pharmaceutical applications, including some regulatory considerations in the design and manufacturing of pharmaceutical products.

Invited Speakers

School of Life Sciences, University of Nottingham, UK

I am currently Head of the School of Life Science at the University of Nottingham, having previously been the Head of the School of Pharmacy (2013-2021). My research focuses on the exploitation of novel manufacturing of medicines, and in particular 3D printing. To support this work, I employ a range of advanced analytical techniques and state of the art 3D printing, including a dedicated clean-room Pharma 3D printing facility. I have published over 300 research papers and I was the founder of the Nottingham Nanotechnology and Nanoscience Centre, and a co-founder of spin-outs including Molecular Profiles Ltd, now part of Catalant. I have received a number of awards including Queen’s Awards for Enterprise and the UK Academy of Pharmaceutical Sciences Medal and was listed in the global Highly Cited Researchers 2021 from Clarivate™.

Department of Pharmaceutics, Utrecht University, The Netherlands

Julian Quodbach is a pharmacist by training and obtained his PhD at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf, Germany. Since 2015 he is researching 3d printing as manufacturing tool for pharmaceutical products. After a postdoc at the Drug Delivery Group at Uppsala University, Sweden in 2019, Julian Quodbach returned to Düsseldorf to continue his work on 3D printing. In January 2022, Julian joined the Utrecht Institute for Pharmaceutical Sciences at Utrecht University, The Netherlands as Assistant Professor. There, he connects his academic work on 3D printing of medicines with clinical applications.

Department of Pharmacy, University of Copenhagen, Denmark

Natalja Genina, Associate professor at University of Copenhagen (UCPH), Denmark. Her research interest include fabrication of advanced drug delivery systems and their integration into digital health. Dr. Genina has a remarkable publication record within her research field.
