3D printing of Drug Delivery Devices for Personalised Medicine

Research Project Summary:

Personalizing treatments for each patient with consideration of their genomes, lifestyle, and surroundings is the aim of “personalised medicine.” One of the important enabling technologies for personalised medicine is additive manufacturing (AM), which makes it possible to produce customized medication delivery systems.

Devices having lead times between minutes and days at the point of care. Even though several AM technologies have been investigated for customized drug delivery devices, the most cutting-edge method involves combining the Hot Melt Extrusion (HME) process to create drug-loaded polymeric filament that can be used to print drug delivery device using a Fused deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printer.


Yazan Odeh, is 3D printing Engineer with global skills in Process Design and complete Manufacturing Support. Experienced in working with teams of professionals to achieve the highest level of manufacturing success. His research interest is in additive manufacturing and material development.
