PRINTMED-3D has the potential to signal the transition from care of people to care of the individual. Doctors will no longer treat the heart, the liver, and the kidneys, but my heart, my liver and my kidneys, personalizing the treatments, improving their effectiveness and, probably, giving rise to new medications with specific actions.
PRINTMED-3D can create the definitive training tool in the field of surgery, a tool with which complex surgical procedures can be planned n a repeatable and risk-free environment.

PRINTMED-3D could become the first, ambitious, step on the road to the realization of fully functional artificial organs, while offering an ethical and innovative solution for their simulation.
