Mr. Djordje Jaksic is an undergraduate student studying cellular and molecular biology and ecology at the University of Michigan. He is a research assistant in Dr. David Zopf’s biomedical engineering lab which utilizes computer-aided design (CAD) and 3D printing/additive manufacturing (AM) techniques to design and develop a variety of high fidelity medical educational simulators. He has worked on multiple projects involving AM, ranging from the development of patient-specific therapeutic ear splints for patients with microtia to the design and manufacture of multiple medical educational simulators based off patient anatomy. He intends to pursue medical school with an interest in further developing applications of 3D-printing/AM in the medical field.
