Oxford Performance Materials and Yale to Develop 3D Printed Biomedical Technologies

Oxford Performance Materials commenced an extensive joint research program with Yale University to develop innovative and cost-effective 3D printed biomedical technologies and applications. The program will explore a range of biomedical applications for 3D printing with OPM's proprietary OXPEKK® high performance polymer poly-ether-ketone-ketone (PEKK). Projects include the development of new PEKK-based cranial and facial devices that support direct tissue attachment and 3D printed PEKK prosthesis for rib replacement. Projects also include 3D printed PEKK devices that deliver therapeutics for improved vertebral fusion as well as devices that deliver antibiotics to combat the pressing burden of implant associated infections.
