    Biomilq - Cell Cultured Human Milk | Leila Strickland

    Biomilq - Cell Cultured Human Milk | Leila Strickland

    In this episode, Dr. Rosie Sendher and guest co-host Bre Grofscik are joined by Dr. Leila Strickland, co-founder and chief science officer of Biomilq. Leila’s personal experience as a mother gave birth to this mother-centered and woman-owned company, which creates cell-cultured human milk from mammary epithelial cells. These are the same cells that produce milk in a lactating mother, and Biomilq is researching how to best nurture and grow these cells in a laboratory setting to produce human milk! This remarkable novel innovation aims to empower mothers without compromising early nutrition.
    Leila’s story will be a familiar one to many, as breast-feeding is an endeavor that is often riddled with challenges. Please join us for an important discussion that begins at the cellular level - highlighting Biomilq’s research, breastmilk composition, and lactation physiology - and ends at the macro level where we explore how access, resources, and professional culture all impact breast-feeding and child nutrition.

    Machine Learning in Healthcare | Param Bidja

    Machine Learning in Healthcare | Param Bidja

    By now, you most likely have heard about Artificial Intelligence (or "AI") and/or Machine Learning. However, Machine Learning - the study of computer algorithms that improve automatically through experience and data - is actually seen as a separate part of AI that is focused on solving practical problems by using statistics and probability theory. This enables "intelligence" and is the foundation for AI.
    So, as the field of medicine and healthcare systems contemplate the capabilities of AI with the aim to harness its powers to deliver care, where do we start? How do we (and can we) build a foundation through utilizing Machine Learning? What roadblocks/challenges do we face? Can healthcare and technology work together in this way? What is the intention of this technology, and are there ethical implications we must consider?


    In this episode, Dr. Rosie Sendher, Dr. Erica Fisk, and guest Param Bidja - an accomplished Software Engineer at Amazon Web Services with experience in health informatics - discuss these questions. Join them as they explore the capabilities of AI, its application in the healthcare system, and the possible outcomes of harnessing data to deliver streamlined and more informed care.

    Does Innovation Increase Healthcare Costs? | Dr. Fred Lam

    Does Innovation Increase Healthcare Costs? | Dr. Fred Lam

    Welcome to Season 2 of the Medical Matrix Podcast! Your host Dr. Rosie Sendher and co-host Dr. Erica Fisk kickoff Season 2 with a discussion on health technology innovation. Joined by recurring guest and surgeon-scientist Dr. Fred Lam, we dive into how healthcare systems and financial models in the US and Canada impact innovation in medical technology, how medical technology research is actually funded, and what drives discovery and advances in this field. Is there a meaningful difference between these systems? Can we have more socialized systems without compromising innovation? The trio draw upon their own experiences in research and in clinical practice as they explore these topics and question how we can continue to invent, innovate, and solve medical problems through technology.

    Virtual Reality for Surgery | Dr. Robert Louis

    Virtual Reality for Surgery | Dr. Robert Louis

    How can virtual reality help neurosurgery? When it comes to practicing surgery, the medical world allows for two options: operating on cadavers or going over the procedure in a theoretical way before actually touching a patient. But is this enough practice for a surgeon? Is there a better way to get familiarized with a procedure or to sharpen your cutting skills?
    Today's guest, Dr. Robert Louis, is a board-certified neurosurgeon specializing in minimally invasive brain and skull-base tumor surgery as well as complex spine pituitary surgery. Dr. Rosie Sendher and Dr. Erica Fisk talk with Dr. Louis about a virtual reality software that has changed the way he operates on his neuro patients since it allows him to practice on a model of their exact anatomy before going into the procedure.


    We’ve seen virtual reality and augmentation come and go through the years, could this be the technology that surpasses the threshold of trendy gadgets and stays? Tune in to know more about how this technology can bring immense changes to the way medics learn and continue to operate.

    Cannabis vs Opioid use for MSK Medicine | Dr. Herman Johal

    Cannabis vs Opioid use for MSK Medicine | Dr. Herman Johal

    When it comes to pain control and our well-being, we’d be willing to turn to anything for relief, even an unregulated drug. In today’s episode, Dr. Rosie Sendher and Dr. Erika Fisk welcome Dr. Herman Johal, to have a discussion around a controversial topic in the medical field for its ethical reasons: the usage of cannabis as a treatment. There’s no denying that cannabis has brought relief to millions of patients thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties, and yet there is still no funding, and as a result, no research, to start to better comprehend this ancient remedy.
    Dr. Johal is an orthopaedic surgeon and assistant professor in the Department of Surgery at the McMaster University, who specializes in trauma orthopaedics. Passionate about education and research, he has become an advocate for cannabis study and discussion in the medical ecosystem. Tune in and listen to this important discussion on cannabis in medicine, and to learn more about both patients’ and professionals’ experiences with this remedy.
