The Faces of Bioprinting: Meet Luz Martinez

Name: Luz Martinez

Job title: Quality Control Engineer


  1. Why are you interested in 3DBioprinting?


For the past 2 years I have been working with 3D printing. I became so interested that as soon as the industry became bigger I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life working with it. Right now all eyes are on 3D Bioprinting because of the possibilities it has on affecting our future.


  1. What about 3D Bioprinting do you find the most exciting?


The possibility to bioprint organs, skin, tissue and stop animal cruelty are all major reasons I find this field so enticing. I love working with technology and machines in general. Working with 3D Bioprinting was sort if an epiphany. To me metal and bioprinting were the most exciting fields. I decided to go with bioprinting due to how it will change our lives.


I think it’s important to be a game changer and I wanted to be apart of this. I always knew I wanted to be part of a new industrial revolution. I did not want to be left behind, I had to jump on the train as soon as I could.


  1. What else would you like people to know about your involvement with 3D Bioprinting?


I made a big sacrifice to start studying again after I had a family. I have two children, a house and a job that I enjoyed but knew I was destined for another path. I picked up my life, I moved and started studying 3D printing. After I completed my studies I was recruited to work for CELLINK which was a dream come true. I am so excited to work here and help change the future.


As a quality control engineer I am very passionate about improving the quality of our products. We have a good position in the market right now and having the best quality is key to remaining a leader.
