By constantly bringing breakthrough innovations to market, Siemens Healthineers helps healthcare professionals to deliver high-quality care, leading to the best possible outcome for patients. 

Siemens Healthineers Research Scientist Chloé Audigier enjoys a very rewarding career as she undertakes incredibly important work.

Her colleague, Chief Technology Officer for Siemens Healthineers Peter Schardt, says: "Research and development is both a marathon and a team sport. Without people, the best ideas would never become innovative solutions. I’m grateful to be surrounded by a team of bright and courageous minds set on making healthcare more accessible, efficient, sustainable, and humane. My colleague Chloé Audigier is modeling the human liver."

Applying science to build solutions is rewarding 

"Liver conditions are affecting an increasing number of people. Liver cancer is even the third leading cause of death from cancer globally. Therefore, there is a need for better screening and therapy options to treat patients," explains Chloé.

"I think it's very rewarding to try applying science to build solutions that could help patients live longer and healthier lives."

Chloé works on an exciting project where the company is developing a digital twin of the patient's liver, which could help clinicians simulate and test therapy options before performing them on the actual patient. 

Chloé shares: "Today therapies are performed based on standardized guidelines. The patient is mapped on the guideline based on his or her condition. However, the patient clinical data in physiology could help in refining this decision-making in order to select the best treatment for the patient at this moment in time. We use a large amount of data to build a general model that represents the anatomy, so the live shape vasculature and also the lesion. Additionally, we developed a physiological model that could represent the blood flow circulation inside the liver as well as the hepatic function."

Chloé feels very rewarded through her work. "The most rewarding part was when I talked to a clinician and when I see that my solution could really have an impact to make their job easier and better for the treatment of the patient."
