As 3D printing and biotech continues to move forward, changes in politics can have an effect on the medical field and how future decisions will be made. Especially when it comes to decisions being made by the FDA.

As Gottlieb prepares for his Senate confirmation hearings, there’s likely to be lots of interest in his public thoughts on healthcare.¬† His writings reveal the sharp mind of a man who doesn’t believe the system is fundamentally broken, but who is distrustful of bureaucracy as a solution and attuned to the way that small policy changes can have outside effects.

Let’s see what this means for the world of bioprinting. Read below to see this Forbes article with Scott Gottlien.
