Tech founder Elliot McAllister is a Hokie from the Materials Science Department (’13) and a serial entrepreneur. His latest venture, Skyphos Technologies, is a micro-3D printing platform that solves a decades-long manufacturing gap for next-generation medical diagnostics and lab-on-a-chip components, getting cures off the lab bench to the patient bedside. His additive manufacturing platform placed Top 5 in a worldwide Lab-on-a-Chip in Engineering in 2018, and unlike most 3D printers it combines speed with truly awesome resolutions. This is a great webinar with a world-class panel of experts in regenerative medicine, tissue engineering, and microfluidics. Skyphos Technologies is a former RAMP alumni.

“The latest advantages of utilizing 3D printing for the fabrication of microfluidic devices and organ-on-a-chip systems have opened up new horizons in biomedical research and personalized medicine. 3D printing offers precision and flexibility that traditional methods often cannot achieve, enabling the rapid and cost-effective production of intricate microscale structures that mimic the complexity of human organs and tissue environments. Researchers can now customize microfluidic devices to emulate specific physiological conditions, allowing for more accurate drug testing and disease modeling. Moreover, the ability to integrate multiple materials in a single print enables the recreation of tissue interfaces and vascular networks, fostering the development of more lifelike organ-on-a-chip platforms. This innovative approach promises to revolutionize drug development, toxicology testing, and disease understanding, offering a glimpse into a future where personalized medicine is driven by these advanced, 3D-printed microsystems. In this upcoming virtual event, 3DHEALS invites you to join world-class panelists and entrepreneurs to explore the future of this promising application together.” Watch the video webinar to learn more!
