Responding to the need for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and other safety items during the pandemic

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

In March 2020, the first outbreak of Covid-19 was announced in Northern Ireland (NI) and the virus then quickly started to spread. With the enormous shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE), staff at Queen’s University Belfast (QUB) wondered what they could do to help their colleagues in the healthcare professions and the local community in these exceptionally challenging times. Our team quickly responded by coming up with a pioneering programme to develop PPE and other items using 3D printers (3DP) that are normally used for research to manufacture drug delivery systems and medical devices.
