The newly established Medical Modeling, Materials and Manufacturing Lab (M4 Lab) was recently featured on WBNS-10TV. In the lab, experts work to find innovative engineering solutions for real-world needs in clinical medicine.


The M4 Lab is a hub for innovative approaches to health care and advanced manufacturing techniques that brings together experts from the College of Medicine’s Department of Otolaryngology, the College of Engineering’s CDME and the Institute for Materials Research (IMR) under one roof at the Nanotech West Lab user facility on West Campus.


“The goal of the M4 Lab is to support the life-saving efforts of Ohio State’s medical professionals and faculty by stimulating and centralizing research innovation around bioengineering, medical device development and clinical 3D printing,” said M4 Lab Program Manager Mary Hoffman Pancake, who also serves as program manager at the Center for Design and Manufacturing Excellence (CDME).
