    Talk Title: 3D Printing of Multi-scale, Multi-material, and Multi-functional Structures and Devices for Biomedical Engineers

    Abstract: Three-dimensional 3D printing technology has seen significant developments, expanding its impact across various sectors, such as the biomedical and dental fields, due to its unique ability to create products tailored to individual requirements. This talk will report some of our recent work on developing new multi-scale, multi-material, and multi-functional 3D printing processes to fabricate structures and devices that may enhance biomedical research and foster collaborative efforts. After a brief overview of the development and limits of current 3D printing technology, I will present several additive manufacturing AM processes developed at our lab to fabricate complex reinforcement architectures, functional surfaces, and smart devices. Some novel designs and promising applications enabled by the 3D-printed structures will also be discussed. The talk will conclude with remarks and thoughts on future 3D printing advancements and fabrication capabilities that may benefit Biomedical Engineering researchers.

    Biography: Dr. Yong Chen is a professor of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering and Industrial and Systems Engineering at the University of Southern California (USC). His research focuses on additive manufacturing (3D printing) and related modeling, control, material, and application. He has published 1 edited book, 4 book chapters, and nearly 200 publications in refereed journals and conferences, as well as 19 issued and pending U.S. patents. His work has been recognized by over 15 Best/Outstanding Paper Awards in major design and manufacturing conferences and research journals. Other major awards he received include the NSF CAREER Award, USC’s Innovation Commercialization Awards, and invitations to the National Academy of Engineering Frontiers of Engineering Symposiums. Dr. Chen is a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). He has served as conference/program chair and keynote speaker at several international design and manufacturing conferences. At USC, Dr. Chen teaches design and manufacturing-related courses to undergraduate and graduate students and helps students and collaborators create four startup companies related to 3D printing.
