Richard Bibb

Professor of Medical Applications of Design

Loughborough

I am a Professor of Medical Applications of Design and Director of Research in the School of Design & Creative Arts. I also founded and am a member of the Digital Design & Fabrication research group (DDF). My teaching concentrates on final year design and postgraduate programmes. I supervise undergraduate Final Year Design Practice and postgraduate Major Projects. The focus of my research is the effective application of design and advanced product development technologies in medicine and surgery. Other research interests include Design for Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) and the development of Additive Manufacturing materials and processes for medical and rehabilitation applications. My specialist areas of expertise are Rapid Prototyping, 3D Printing, Additive Manufacturing, and in particular the application of these technologies in rehabilitation, medicine and surgery. I have also been involved in interdisciplinary research in archaeology, fine art and heritage.
