When it comes to fighting the COVID-19 pandemic, Mayo Clinic is relying not only on clinicians, but also engineers. Supply chain management and manufacturing capabilities are being readied to help in the fight against COVID-19.
On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Jonathan Morris, co-director of Mayo Clinic’s 3D Anatomic Modeling Lab, and Mark Wehde, chair of Mayo Clinic’s Division of Engineering, discuss personal protective equipment and mobilizing the manufacturing sector to help in the fight. They’ll share how they’re utilizing 3D printing to jump start conventional scalable manufacturing processes to retro-engineer pieces of respiratory equipment and solve today’s problems in the fight against COVID-19.
