3D Printing: Making the Future

February 25, 2015
Lewis lecture announcement

Science Center Hall C
March 4, 2015 @7PM

Jennifer A. Lewis, Hansjörg Wyss Professor of Biologically Inspired Engineering, SEAS

3D printing enables one to rapidly design and fabricate materials in arbitrary shapes on demand. Prof. Lewis will introduce the fundamental principles that underpin 3D printing techniques. She will then describe how new functional and biological materials are vastly expanding the capabilities of 3D printing. Finally, she will highlight several emerging examples, including 3D printed electronics, lightweight composites, and vascularized tissue constructs, that demonstrate how this (still) nascent technology is being used to make the future.
