The Medical Additive Manufacturing research group (Swiss MAM) is located at the Department of Biomedical Engineering (DBE) of the University of Basel. We develop innovative solutions in the area of Computer Assisted Surgery, Virtual Surgical Planning and Medical Additive Manufacturing (Medical 3D Printing). Together with our regional, national and international partners we take the future to the clinic. We work closely together at and with the University Hospital Basel, other clinics in Switzerland and abroad.
Our patients deserve the best possible treatment – the optimal medical services and solutions available in the world – without compromise.
To achieve this goal, we work in an open-minded, diverse, international, inter- and multidisciplinary setting. Beyond working in laboratories and working out complex formulae, we perform applied research at the forefront of medical innovation to improve the treatment of our patients.
Online networking events and Cora Lüders motivated us to become a member.
In the topic of 3D printing in medicine, with a focus on research, workflows, certification and especially point-of-care manufacturing, we see a lot of potential (and need) for cooperation with other members from the network.
Many years of experience in computer-assisted surgery and medical 3D printing as a group and as an (oral and maxillofacial) surgeon, as a researcher and innovator, as a research group leader in biomedical engineering and in the clinic in a multidisciplinary setup. We already have a very large national and international network and are happy to bring in these contacts.
