About the Conference


October 16 and 17, 2018 — Guidewell Innovation Center in Medical City
Changing Healthcare With 3D Printing Technology
Enabling Personalized Medicine/Healthcare

  • How is 3D-Printing re-shaping and impacting the medical, dental, healthcare communities and you?
  • What 3D Printing can, and cannot do today
  • What’s the impact of this technology on the patient experience?
  • Is your healthcare facility ready for this new revolution?
  • Are you ready to leverage this transformational technology to deliver real world solutions?

Evolving 3D Printing and imaging technologies have opened the door to enhanced clinical and healthcare applications. These applications have enabled patient specific or personalized medical simulation and treatment tools. These applications are patient specific and span a broad base of user cases including anatomic models for complex visualization and surgical planning, custom fixtures, surgical tooling and cutting guides, anatomic replacement and reconstruction. This is just the beginning!

This conference will address the integration of the technologies necessary to drive standardized clinical practice including:

  • anatomic imaging
  • image reconstruction
  • segmentation
  • CAD design and augmentation
  • biocompatible materials
  • 3D Printing hardware
  • examples of actual patient specific cases

Collaboration Sessions at the Conference

The Summit on 3D printing in Healthcare,  will provide “Lunch and Learn” sessions, moderated and hosted by Jack Stubbs,  on both conference days that will interactively identify and determine collaboration and funding opportunities and provide a networking format to accelerate 3D printing developments in Healthcare. On Oct. 16 we will explore areas of collaboration, program needs and vehicles to funding opportunities. We will identify categories of potential collaboration and program directions.  On Oct. 17 we will group in interest and expertise areas to form development collaborations to pursue 3D printing programs.  Working Groups, contact information and developed collaboration information will be sent by email after the conference to those attending.

(Attendees will have an opportunity to sign up for these sessions ahead of the conference)

Boot Camp Faculty

Jack Stubbs is the Director of the Prototype Development and 3D Printing Lab at the Institute for Simulation and Training at the University of Central Florida. He studied Physics and Electro-Optics at the Miami University of Ohio and the University of Dayton (Ohio). In the 1980’s he worked with the Department of Defense with the University of Dayton Research Institute and the Illinois Institute of Technology Research Institute as a contractor at Wright Patterson Airforce Base, the Naval Weapons Center and Kirtland Airforce Base. This work included development of customized Optical Metrology system to characterize High Energy lasers for application to the Airborne Laser Lab and the Star Wars SDI Laser system. At Wright Patterson AFB he worked in pilot protection, advanced cockpit control and materials characterization to advance the state of the art in personnel control and protection.

In the 1990’s Jack lead a Technology development team for Ethicon Endo Surgery in the scale up of Laparoscopic surgery, working with the implementation of imaging, visualization, robotics and sensors to the minimally invasive surgical techniques. This lead to the appointment of Principal Investigator for the OR of the Future with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. This group developed telepresence surgical robotics and computer based simulation systems for training and education.

Jack started a research and development company in 1996 which he led through 2010. This business resulted in over 50 patents including the Airseal trocar for laparoscopic surgery which is now the trocar of choice for robotic surgery having been used in over 700,000 surgeries globally. The last 4 years have been at the University of Minnesota Medical School and most recently the University of Central Florida Institute for Simulation and Training where he leads a team developing new approached and technology for simulating and teaching healthcare interactions and procedures. He has used rapid prototyping, 3D printing and additive manufacturing since the mid 1990’s to improve designs, prototype and test devices and systems and to implement into a cost effective development model.

Paul Frisch, PhD, FHIMSS is currently an Associate Attending in the Department of Medical Physics and the Chief of Biomedical Engineering at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.   He currently serves on technical committees and advisory boards including IEEE Counsel on RFID, ECRI Institute and serves as the Chief Technical Officer for the RFID in Healthcare Consortium and President of the Intelligent Health Association.

Current areas of research include the study of electromagnetic field induced gene expression.  This work focuses on the identification of promoter sequences sensitive to specific electromagnetics fields which could be used as gene therapy initiators. Previous experiences include research in human biodynamics investigating human response to transitory acceleration, such as crash-impact and aircraft ejection and robotic applications in pharmaceutical development.

Paul Frisch has a Doctoral degree in Biomedical Engineering from the State University of New York at Binghamton and Masters and Bachelors degrees in Electrical Engineering from the State University of New York at Stony Brook.
