Ireland’s leading provider of 3D printed anatomical models, MedScan3D, has announced the appointment of Cornelio Salinas to the role of Biomedical Engineer.
Based in Galway City, Ireland, MedScan3D are experts in the creation of highly accurate patient specific 3D anatomical models, placing real anatomy in the hands of healthcare professionals and research engineers. Services provided by the company include converting medical scans into STL files that can be adapted using CAD design for port merging, 3D printed prototype models and customisable silicone casted test model’s. These medical models can be made in a variety of materials for applications in medical device prototyping and testing, pre surgical planning and for educational purposes.
Speaking at the announcement of the newly created role, MedScan3D founder and Technical Director Jacqui O’Connor was delighted with the new addition to the company. “As we continue to grow and expand MedScan3D we are continually looking to secure the best possible talent, and so we are incredibly pleased to welcome Cornelio to our team. Hi experience in applied physics and material sciences are a perfect fit as we develop this new role of Biomedical Engineer.”
Having secured a double degree in Applied Physics and Material Science Engineering in the Philippines, Cornelio made the move to Ireland and completed a Masters in Medical Physics, securing a grade First Class Honours. From there Cornelio has completed research roles within the National University Hospital Galway within the radiotherapy department, as well as a spell at Galway Clinic focused on breast tissue imaging. More recently he also completed the first phase of the Therapeutic Medical Physics Exam.
Looking ahead to his new role at MedScan3D, Cornelio was excited to get started. “I’m really looking forward to this new role with the team at MedScan3D. I have always had a real focus on problem solving, so to be able to leverage my experience to date in the areas of medical 3D printing is a great opportunity and I can’t wait to get started!”
Cornelio will be heavily involved with the IPP Feasibility Study soon to be undertaken by the company in conjunction with IMR which was recently awarded by Enterprise Ireland.
