AI For Pharma Growth

Mar 27, 2024

In this episode of AI For Pharma Growth, Dr Andree Bates is joined by Dr Michelle Oyen, Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Washington University in St.Louis. 


Michelle discusses the use and importance of AI in the field of maternal and fetal health. When an unexpected source changes Michelle’s career trajectory, she used her engineering background to research computational models to gather information related to pregnancy and childbirth. 


Michelle and her team have looked into all aspects of preterm birth to explore the factors into why it is so prevalent. Their research includes maternal, placental and fetal factors, and are challenging the lack of public consciousness of these important health issues.


In this episode you will learn:

  • Michelle’s background in orthopedic biomechanics
  • How a cold call from an obstetrician changed her career trajectory
  • The lack of understanding surrounding pregnancy and how Michelle recognised new potential
  • Complications linked to pregnancy and childbirth, and the value of virtual models in analysing them
  • Identifying and raising awareness of postnatal issues occurring many years after birth
