(StraitsTimes)  An $18 million 3D-printing centre in Singapore will explore tissue regeneration, implants and drug formulations enabled by 3D printing. The National University of Singapore Centre for Additive Manufacturing (AM.NUS), whose laboratories are based at the NUS Kent Ridge campus, will develop and apply 3D-printing technology in the biomedical and healthcare fields.
The new centre will also leverage NUS’ multi-disciplinary expertise from various faculties and conduct courses for postgraduate students. Its co-director Jerry Fuh Ying-Hsi said the centre “will play a critical role in supporting Singapore’s vision of becoming a leading AM hub”.
