Do you know what is really cool? Using your laptop to find new drugs! Do you know what else is cool? Legs! Maybe not at first glance but if you add some 3D printing in the recipe? Much better. And the best? We know a few people doing this and they will talk about that [mic drop]. 

3D-printed shock absorbers for the human knee joint

Jennifer Fritz (PhD student in Regenerative Medicine)
The natural shock absorbers of the knee are called menisci and are pads made of collagen. Every year, nearly 6 thousand people suffer from traumatic meniscus injuries in Austria alone. During surgical treatment, a part of the meniscus or the entire one is usually removed, which increases the risk of osteoarthritis. A meniscus implant could solve this problem. Especially promising are 3D-printed meniscus implants, as the implant can be printed in the architecture of the natural collagen fibers.
