3D-Printed Tracheal Splints Used in Groundbreaking Pediatric Surgery
Biomedical engineers at Tech have designed 3D-printed tracheal splints for pediatric patients. Last month, they were used to assist the breathing of an infant battling a life-threatening airway obstruction.
A summer program gave these undergraduate researchers a rare opportunity for hands-on participation in the emerging field of cell manufacturing. Getting in on the ground floor could turn out to be life-changing.
