AM.NUS

The NUS Centre for Additive Manufacturing (AM.NUS) leverages the University’s world-class faculties, expertise and advanced capabilities in 3D printing technology. NUS seeks to bring innovative products to the field of healthcare that will improve patient outcomes and change lives for the better. AM.NUS will explore a whole new dimension in medicine, applying groundbreaking 3D printing technology for personalized patient treatments. The Centre is supported by National Additive Manufacturing Cluster (NAMIC) and Singapore Economic Development Board.

5 Key Thrusts

The Centre focuses on five main areas of expertise.

featured_image Surgical Instruments, Simulation & Prosthetics

Led by the Division of Industrial Design, our designers and researchers create realistic, customizable, and reusable simulators and instruments to train and educate the next generation of doctors and simplify difficult clinical tasks. The team also has experience in designing functional prosthetics using 3D printing methods.

Additive manufacturing offers new opportunities for the novel formulation of drugs and precise control of dosage and release patterns for every individual. In the future, pharmacists will not need to dispense multiple drugs, but 3D print a custom tablet on the spot. Researchers at the Department of Pharmacy lead efforts in this area.

Every 10 minutes in the United States, a name is added to the transplant waiting list. 22 people die every day while waiting unsuccessfully for a donor organ. 3D printing offers a potential solution for these patients. Using advanced materials and scaffold printing techniques, combined with cell and tissue engineering, will allow scientists and engineers at the School of Medicine to engineer new solutions to regenerate and replace damaged tissues.

Everything about dentistry is customized and highly detailed- areas 3D printing shines in. The Faculty of Dentistry is at the forefront of using 3D printing to improve patient outcomes of dental healthcare.

Core Strengths

Equipped with multidisciplinary Capability and Approaches

Natural phenomena are the events that occur naturally without any interference from the man. Everything around us including the change in weather, thunderstorm, rain, sunrise, fog, tidal flow and various biological processes are examples of natural phenomena. Disasters such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and tornadoes are also natural phenomena. While these natural phenomena are a common sight there are several of them that you may not be aware of and can be beyond your imagination.
