Georgia Tech Pediatrics Invited Speaker Series with Dr. Animesh Tandon

Georgia Tech PTC Seminar

"Harnessing Technology and Innovation for Novel Biomarkers in Congenital Heart Disease and Children"

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.
