Sky News interviews @OzVascDoc on August 26, 2017.
It was only 7 minutes of fame, so Andy Warhol might have been a little disappointed, but we managed a short TV interview on Sky News with Danica DeGiorgio after #3dMedAu17 finished. Sadly our recording isn’t very high quality, but you you have a HD copy then please let us know!
We hope you enjoy reading about the future of medicine and the potential impacts of 3D printing. Many thanks to Andrew Trounson from Pursuit at Unimelb for taking the time to interview us for this article. Make sure you come to the 3dMed Symposium to hear more!
