What do a mechanical and materials engineer, a food scientist and a periodontist have in common?
Surprisingly, 3D printing.
Join our panel as they challenge your preconceptions about 3D printing and, hopefully, change the way you think about manufacturing, food production and dentistry forever.

Meet our panel:
Dr Michael Bermingham is a mechanical and materials engineer working with new metallic additive manufacturing technologies in the Queensland Centre for Advanced Materials Processing and Manufacturing at The University of Queensland. Michael’s research explores how additive manufacturing (3D printing) can enhance the design and manufacture of products for medical, automotive and aerospace applications.
Professor Bhesh Bhandari is a food scientist at The University of Queensland exploring the potential application of 3D printing for novel food product design and development. Bhesh and his team are looking at how food can be digitally designed, printed in a 3-dimensional shape and applied to develop new texture, taste and appearance.
Professor Saso Ivanovski is a periodontist at Griffith University. Using 3D bioprinting, Saso and his team are revolutionising regenerative medicine by printing living bones, gums and teeth using a patient’s own cells. This research has big implications for the field, providing innovative ways to restore form, function and aesthetics following the loss of tissue or organs due to disease and trauma.
