Who We Are
OrganLike are a team of leading bio-engineers, technology innovators and surgical practitioners. We have worked with each other on previous projects and have known each over for at least four years.
OrganLike was formed in July 2017, after several years of development by Isaac Wang, supported by Will Shu. In 2018, and very soon, we shall be adding new staff to the OrganLike team – we look forward to welcoming them onboard and adding them to this site.
PRECISION. PIONEERING. 3D ORGAN PRINTING.
Meet The Team
Prof Will Shu
Founder & Director
Will is the Hay Professor in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. He and his research team pioneered a number of 3D bioprinting technologies including the world’s first human pluripotent stem cell printing technology, paving the way of 3D printed tissues and organs for medical transplantation and drug testing.
Dr Isaac Wang
Founder & Managing Director
Isaac received his PhD from Heriot-Watt University, on mechanical engineering, where he worked with Will. Isaac received his first degree in biotechnology and masters degree in polymer biomaterials. He was a post-doc research associate in mechanical engineering at Heriot-Watt University. Isaac is the inspiration of OrganLike’s unique technology.
Dr John Casey
John has been a Consultant Transplant and General Surgeon and Honorary Senior Lecturer at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh since 2003. He is Lead Clinician for Organ Transplantation in Scotland and Chair of the NHS Blood & Transplant UK Pancreas Advisory Group. He is Director of the Scottish National Islet Transplant Service. John helps us to understand what surgeons really need and want.
Mr Paul Arnold
Paul has held sales & management roles with blue-chip medical device companies Medtronic (formerly Covidien) and Stryker, achieving every sales target presented to him. He has founded and built technology companies and has direct experience in surgical sales & masterclasses. With degrees in Life Science & IT, Paul is well equipped to apply his technical, commercial & entrepreneurial knowledge to support Organlike’s growth in the healthcare market.
Dr Ian MacKenzie
Ian is a mechanical engineer with a masters and a PhD in the subject from Heriot-Watt University. Ian developed a strong background in 3D printing technologies during his PhD research, which focused on the enhancement of 3D bioprinting techniques. Ian joined the OrganLike team in February 2022 as chief engineer and is responsible for overseeing manufacturing and assisting with new product development.
Cooperation on future research and new product development is very welcome – contact us for more details.
