IQDEMY has focused on creating tissues and organs for medical research. It is possible to rapidly screen new potential therapeutic drugs on patient tissue, greatly cutting research costs and time. Our researchers are working on techniques to grow complete human organs that can be used for screening purposes during drug discovery. An organ created from a patient’s own stem cells could also be used to screen treatments to determine if a drug will be effective for that individual.
New possibilities in 3D printing may open up a whole new chapter of opportunities for pharmaceutical research and bio-technology applications. There are a number of ways it could be used — drug dosage forms, supporting delivery, or helping to research cures.
Here are four other ways 3D printing could change the pharmaceutical world forever.
- Personalized drug dosing
- Unique dosage forms
- More complex drug release profiles
- Printing living tissue
