Role within SBR
The RESCOLL team will be responsible for the development of appropriate formulation, compounding and extrusion of medical grade filaments for additive manufacturing. They will oversee the FFF additive manufacturing of the medical-grade polymers. The will also work on the electrospinning of the support matrices for active materials, the pre-functionalization to attach active ingredients as well as on the mechanical testing of the components. RESCOLL will also bring its expertise in medical devices and in polymer sciences, especially relating to the required properties of the system to meet the patient needs.
