Knight Campus researcher seeks to 3D print new medical implants

Bioengineering Associate Professor Paul Dalton and his international colleagues recently took a big step in both manufacturing precision and quality control in 3D-printing processes. The step helped advance melt electrowriting (a high-resolution technique) and better predict fiber size.

First Cohort Joins Knight Campus

The first cohort of bioengineering doctoral students launched their Knight Campus graduate training during IMPACT Week. Students sharpened their communications skills, partnering with UO’s Center for Science Communication Research, and spent a day on innovation training, with a focus on translating their science to the market.  The group also had a chance to tour the new facilities, network with faculty, and strengthen their cohort connections.
