Keynote Speakers

Jonathan Morris, MD

Co-director, Anatomic Modeling Laboratory Neuroradiologist Mayo Clinic

The use of 3D printing has impacted patient care for many years, from anatomical models to new patient-matched devices. 3D manufacturing in the clinical setting has risen in the last few years supported by advancements in machines, materials, software, and awareness. As a leader in medicine, Mayo Clinic has also become a leader in point-of-care manufacturing, establishing their first 3D printing lab in 2006. Combining the diverse expertise of medicine and engineering, the Mayo team has experienced substantial benefits while addressing many challenges. Join us to learn how point-of-care manufacturing is providing patient care advantages, presenting unique obstacles of engineering within a hospital, creating the need for collaboration across disciplines, and impacting the lives of many patients and their families.

The Mayo Clinic 3D Printing/Anatomic Modeling Laboratory produces over 700 anatomic models per year for complex surgical care, multidisciplinary care of complex patients, presurgical simulations of patient specific vascular and non-vascular procedures, custom device creation, and medical and patient education.

Jonathan M. Morris, MD, Mayo Clinic, is co-director of the 3D Printing/Anatomic Modeling Laboratory, and a member of the Division of Neuroradiology where he specializes in minimally invasive thermal ablation of tumors. Dr. Morris has been involved with medical uses of 3D printing since 2001 and co-developed the hospital based 3D printing /Anatomic modeling laboratory at Mayo Clinic with his partner, Jane Matsumoto, MD. Dr. Morris is an international leader within the field focusing on research, educational, clinical, and forensic applications of this disruptive technology. He has co-developed the only CME course for physicians dedicated to 3D printing as well as being nominated within the medical division of the Tekne Awards for technologic advances using additive manufacturing. Working closely with regulatory agencies and medical societies, such as the FDA and RSNA, he aids in developing the future infrastructure needed for medical 3D printing. He cofounded the RSNA 3D printing special interest group (3D –SIG) and is a member of the SME Medical AM/3DP Workgroup.
