This event is part of the Royal Society's Summer Science Exhibition 2023.

The concept of 3D printed pills and personalised medicine is an exciting development in the field of healthcare. One of the key advantages is the ability to customise the dosage and formulation of medicine to suit individual patient’s needs and create pills that release medicine when and where we want. This sounds like something out of a futuristic science fiction movie, but a team of researchers at the University of Nottingham are at the forefront of this innovative technology, and are using state-of-the-art manufacturing methods to make it a reality. 

During this exhibition, we will show how we create 3D printed medicines and you will learn about our passion for this. You will learn more about other 3D printing techniques and applications, interact with a range of curated pieces and see a 3D printer in action.
