Caltech professor Julia Greer joins Azul 3D advisory board
Nanotechnology and 3D-printing pioneer Julia Greer has joined the advisory board of Azul 3D.
Julia Greer is the Ruben F. and Donna Mettler Professor Materials Science, Mechanics and Medical Engineering at the California Institute of Technology, where she also directs the Kavli Nanoscience Institute. In her research, Greer creates 3D micro- and nano-architected materials using 3D printing and nano-fabrication. A world-renowned scientist and engineer, Greer has been recognized by numerous awards, including being named one of CNN’s 2020 Visionaries.
“I am very excited to be a part of the advisory board of such a creative and forward-thinking company,” Greer said. “The processes and products of Azul 3D are fundamentally new and transformative. They resonate with my own research passion for nano- and micro-architected materials and provide a powerful platform for enabling our society’s ‘additively manufactured future,’ in which just about everything will be custom-made and tailored for specific functionality.”
Azul 3D already has kicked off 2021 with a burst of growth. In January 2021 alone, Stanford University’s flexible electronics trailblazer Zhenan Bao and world-renowned litigators Steven Cherny and Ray Nimrod also joined Azul 3D’s advisory board.
“We have a lot more exciting news to share in the coming days,” said Chad A. Mirkin, cofounder and chair of Azul 3D. “We’re fundamentally changing additive manufacturing in ways that previously seemed unimaginable. We’re energized to work with our new advisory board members to continue advancing the field forward.”
