Research in 3D printing has demonstrated remarkable potential in various clinical applications for hospital pharmacies. Examples include the fabrication of pediatric-specific dosage forms, modified-release tablets, and personalized drug combinations. Furthermore, this technology facilitates the development of novel drug delivery systems, such as printed microneedles for transdermal drug administration and drug-loaded implants for sustained release. There are however a lot of regulatory issues, This presentation focuses on “keeping-it-simple” to have a successful installation producing safe medicines to children.

A presentation from Mattias Paulsson, Associate professor / Dep Chief Pharmacist at Akademiska sjukhuset – Uppsala university hospital.

Mattias is driven by finding safe and suitable ways to provide medicines to children. For the first time, there is now 3D-printing equipment on the global market that meets expectations from authorities and consumers.

He works works at the Akademiska sjukhuset – Uppsala university hospital. Akademiska sjukhuset, Uppsala University Hospital, is Sweden’s oldest University Hospital. The first department was established as early as 1708. For more information about the hospital, go to the website.

Mattias Paulsson will be speaking at the 2023 edition of the 3D Medical Conference.
