£21million NIHR research centre to open with 3D printed art installation

A multi-media art installation consisting of 3D printed heart models and medical soundscapes will be displayed at the Bristol Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) of National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), to mark its opening on 1 February. The NIHR, which has the motto “improving the health and wealth of the nation through research,” conducts studies, provides research facilities, and trains NHS staff. Researchers at other NIHR centres have previously used 3D printing to prepare for surgery. One study at the NIHR BRC at The Royal Marsden Hospital in London used 3D printed replica models of tumours and organs to measure the effectiveness of radiotherapy treatments.
