Hi Lena,

Thank you for putting together such an amazing hackathon. It was my first time to see a 3D printer.

It's amazing that Boston has such a wonderful resource as the Alpha Core Lab, a NIH funded prototyping lab looking for new ideas to fund, mentor, and provide support for. I think they call that an NIH funded incubator/accelerator!

Thank you for letting use cover the event live on The MedTech Boston Blog. We're place that is hoping to be a meeting place for all medical and healthcare innovation and technology in Boston!
