Training School 2018

1st CellFit Training School“Dream it, print it, do it”
A practical full immersion course of 3D printing
January-2 February, 2018
Ponte di Legno, Italy

The CellFit Training School will allow a direct practical approach to 3D systems from computer planning, to exporting and to 3D printing. A session will be dedicated to organ perfusion and decellularization to create scaffold for organ transplantation and replacement.

Excellent Speakers and Experts will help the Trainees along four exciting days of sharing, learning and networking. Given the selected location, one evening will be dedicated to highlight the local natural and cultural heritage, exploring the Alpine ecosystem and outstanding beauty and discussing about their protection and preservation.
