Special Issue Information
Three-dimensional printing technology is expanding its scope in various medical fields, such as pharmacy and biomedical engineering, and the number of papers has increased rapidly over the past five years. Since 3D printers can be used for on-demand manufacturing, they are expected to be applied to personalized medicine for each patient, and the model of medicine with unique shapes and structures based on unique concepts have been reported.
This Special Issue invites research on various medicines and instruments related to 3D printers. For example, medicines in various dosage forms based on a unique concept created with a 3D printer, medicines for elderly and pediatric patients who do not meet their needs, special devices for administering drugs, functional materials suitable for modeling with various 3D printers, special 3D printer parts suitable for manufacturing special pharmaceutical products, quality control research necessary for manufacturing 3D printers in future pharmaceutical factories and medical institutions, and fusion of advanced technologies (such as information technology and 3D printers) are applicable.
Original research articles and reviews are welcome. I look forward to receiving your contributions.
Dr. Tatsuaki Tagami
