Students and Collaborators

The IRC is always looking for bright students excited to learn more about orthopaedic implant retrieval and medical 3D printing. We welcome students from highschool through graduate school as volunteers, co-ops, and visiting researchers. For Drexel students, click here to see our biomedical additive manufacturing class offerings and past STAR projects.

We also welcome research collaborators from academia, industry, and government, and always look forward to finding new projects and areas of research. Click here to learn more information on our current research projects.


Our implant retrieval collection is always expanding, but we couldn't do it without the help of our partner clinics around the country. If you are a clinician or administrator and would like to donate your retrieved implants to the IRC, please reach out to Tabitha Derr at


Much of our work couldn't be done without the support of our partners. If you would like to sponsor a research project or make a tax deductible contribution to the IRC, please contact Dr. Steven Kurtz at
