Innovative Organ Printer To Create New Jobs At Inverness Campus
The continued advancement of life sciences at Inverness Campus took another step forward this week, with the arrival of OrganLike.
The company emerged from pioneering work carried out by Dr Isaac Wang, Herriot Watt University and Prof Will Shu, Strathclyde University. They developed advanced 3D printing technology to produce hyper-realistic organ models for surgical rehearsal and training.
The products will help to significantly improve surgical outcomes, patient recovery and the efficiency of surgical activities.
After securing private investment and a £160,000 start-up grant from Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE), the new-start company has taken space at the purpose built life sciences development, Aurora House.
Stephanie Andrew, HIE’s business development account manager, said: “OrganLike is a great example of innovation and collaboration that is now typical among organisations based at Inverness Campus. Their product has clear global marketing potential and will create new highly skilled and well-paid jobs.”
