It’s becoming more common for students to use 3D printing technology to build tools for their research labs, and it’s much cheaper than buying spare parts or having them made.
The research project, which is funded by a $67,987 grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and its New Jersey Health Initiatives program, will assess the extent to which low-income families living in Camden’s Cramer Hill neighborhood, located within a one-mile radius of the Kroc Center, make use of the facility, and the effect that this usage has on their diet and physical health behaviors in the short and long terms.
This exciting project was funded through the Rutgers-Cleveland Clinic Consortium of AFIRM. Cleveland Clinic performed its second near-total face transplant on a patient missing the middle of his face, forehead and eye sockets.
