Arrival with your own car:

Use the Parkhaus City/Unispital Basel on Schanzenstr. 48/Klingelbergstr. 20 in 4056 Basel, which is located directly at the University Hospital. The elevators take you directly to the hospital courtyard. Our symposium takes place in the ZLF building on the 1st floor in the large lecture hall.

Arriving by public transport:

From Basel SBB train station, take tram line 11 in the direction of St. Louis Grenze and get off at the Unispital stop. Then go to the main hospital entrance at Spitalstrasse 21 and go through the foyer of Klinikum 1 and the inner courtyard. Our symposium will take place at the ZLF building in front. Please go to the large lecture hall, first floor.

Registration open

The “3D Printing for Life Sciences” symposium is providing an insight into current state of the art of 3D Printing in various disciplines of Life Sciences. It offers a platform for stakeholders and researchers from pharmaceutical and medical device industry as well as interested clinicians to exchange themselves with dedicated experts in 3D Printing.

The Steering Committe

3D Printing – also known as “Additive Manufacturing” has been used in Life Sciences for several decades. It all started with simple 3D printed surgical bone models almost 30 years ago and went over to 3D printed metal or ceramic implants in the recent decades as well as 3D bioprinting for tissue engineering.

But what comes next? What are upcoming applications in clinical daily routine, or in medical device industry? Could we someday print body parts like joints or even organs? Is Additive Manufacturing entering any other Life Sciences applications? What if the technology becomes cheaper and easier accessible? What if end-users become producers of medical devices? Do we face any specific legal problems?

Get this insight into “3D Printing for Life Sciences” at our symposium on 28. June 2023. The University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland and the University Hospital Basel present in collaboration with BaselArea.swiss this event at the Zentrum für Lehre und Forschung in Basel.
