Improving 3D-printed models of human brain

University of Florida

Thomas Angelini, an associate professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, and Senthilkumar Duraivel, a Ph.D. candidate in materials science and engineering at UF’s Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering, recently published research into a new technique for creating a replica of the brain using 3D printing.

The new approach uses silicone to make more accurate models of the blood vessels in the brain, enabling neurosurgeons to train with more realistic simulations before they operate.

They explain their research findings in this article published in The Conversation.
