UR CTSI: We can grow a new ear, but how do we regulate it?

As the utility of 3D printing continues to grow, so does the need for appropriate regulation of these products by the Food and Drug administration (FDA). Experts from academia, government, industry and foundations discussed the emerging science and regulatory considerations of 3D printing at a forum in the fall of 2017, and a sub-group recently published their findings and recommendations in the Journal of Clinical and Translational Science.

ICYMI: News from the Science & Research World

Nature: Large teams develop and small teams disrupt science and technology

Science carried out by big teams can look a lot different than science produced by smaller groups. Researchers analyzed millions of papers, patents & products from 1954-2014 & scored their “disruptiveness.” They found that small teams tend to disrupt science by exploring older, less well-known work, and large teams focus on recent scientific successes by sharpening and solving problems with them.
