Episode details

What: Lazarus 3D is a seed-stage US-based organisation that produces 3-dimensional printed synthetic human tissue models for surgical training. They are proprietors of world's first FDA cleared technology that allows physicians to rehearse their case on a personalised copy of the patient before the “real” operation, claiming to improve surgical confidence, patient safety and outcomes.

Who: Both Smriti and Jacques hold PhDs in medical and human genetics from Baylor College of Medicine, with Smriti serving as Lazarus’ President and Jacques as CEO.

We talk about: (Literally) building a business from your kitchen table, personalising surgical care, and why job titles don’t really matter.
