Research Focus

Regenerative Medicine & Biomechanics

Area of Research

The research group MAM – Medical Additive Manufacturing is a subdivision of the High-Tech Research Center (HFZ) at the Department of Biomedical Engineering (DBE) of the University of Basel. We work closely together at and with the University Hospital Basel (Medical 3D Print Lab @ USB), other clinics, academic institutions and research groups in Switzerland and abroad. Our research focuses on innovative solutions in the field of computer-aided surgery and medical 3D printing, including bio-printing and regenerative medicine.
