Stratasys Ltd. the 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions company, today announced that it is partnering with New York-based Jacobs Institute (JI) to create a new Center of Excellence (COE) with the goal of advancing the use of 3D printing for a variety of medical applications.
The new COE will leverage Stratasys’ 3D printing technology to develop and test new medical devices using 3D printed prototypes and models and enrich clinical education and training activities for a variety of audiences. The COE will also serve as a referral center for hospitals and medical research organizations that are considering implementing 3D printing labs.
“By partnering with Stratasys, the Jacobs Institute is bringing the leader in 3D printing to Buffalo to work closely with the JI and its partners, Kaleida Health and the University at Buffalo, to accelerate the development of new medical technologies,” said Bill Maggio, CEO of the Jacobs Institute. “Working together, the respective institutions will leverage their strengths to make an impact far greater than they could make individually.”
