Prof. Carlos Carvalho
In 1996, Carlos left Portugal for Germany to study chemistry, graduating in photopolymerization, at the Philipps-Universität Marburg. After graduating in 2003, he went on to begin his Ph.D. program at the Albert Ludwig University of Freiburg, where a bioprinter was already under development. During that time, Carlos worked on his Ph.D. thesis using the first, second and third generations of the 3D-Bioplotter, manufacturing implants in the young field of biofabrication with established biocompatible or biological materials. Carlos joined EnvisionTEC in 2009, where he started development on the 4th generation 3D-Bioplotter, which was specially designed to meet specifications for use in a clean room and in clinical trials.
