Animesh (Aashoo) Tandon, MD, MS; FAAP, FACC, FAHA HIP2022

Dr. Tandon is a physician-scientist and healthcare innovator, who serves as Director of
Cardiovascular Innovation at Cleveland Clinic Children’s, and the Clinical Innovation Lead for the
Pediatric Institute.

His current research interests focus on:

    -Using computational modeling and machine learning to derive novel imaging-based biomarkers to improve predictions in congenital heart disease
    -Using and designing wearable biosensors to generate novel physiologic information for high-risk patients (both inpatient and outpatient)
    -Using artificial intelligence/machine learning/big data techniques on these data to generate actionable insights
    • -Using virtual and augmented reality, and 3D printing, to improve surgical planning

He also advises companies looking to innovate in the wearable, congenital heart disease, and
imaging spaces.

Dr. Tandon graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a BA in 2003. During his medical
training at the University of Michigan Medical School, he performed a research fellowship at the
NINDS/NIH through the Howard Hughes Medical Institute/NIH Research Scholars (Cloister) Program.
Dr. Tandon completed his pediatric residency and categorical pediatric cardiology fellowship at
Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. During fellowship, he earned a Masters in Clinical and
Translational Research from the University of Cincinnati. He then completed an advanced imaging
fellowship at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta/Emory University. He was most recently Assistant
Professor of Pediatrics at UT Southwestern, and started at Cleveland Clinic Children’s in fall 2021.
Professional Highlights

Dr. Tandon was recently awarded a K23 career development grant through the NIH/NHLBI to
develop novel imaging biomarkers using cardiovascular MRI for patients with tetralogy of Fallot. He
has been funded for his work in wearable biosensors through philanthropic grants.
