April 26, 2016 -- 3D printing technology developer Stratasys is joining forces with the Jacobs Institute in Buffalo, NY, to form a center of excellence aimed at advancing the use of 3D printing in medical applications.

The center will use the company's 3D printing technology to develop and test new medical devices via 3D printed prototypes and models, according to the firm. It will also offer clinical education and training and will serve as a referral center for hospitals and medical research organizations that are considering implementing 3D printing labs, Stratasys said.

In addition to providing a range of 3D printing technologies, Stratasys will collaborate with the Jacobs Institute on technical and clinical case studies, the company said. It will also provide financial support for research projects.
