Animesh (Aashoo) Tandon, M.D., M.S., is Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, with joint appointments in Radiology and Biomedical Engineering, at UT Southwestern. He 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.

Dr. Tandon’s current clinical and research interests are focused on the use of cardiac MRI (CMR) to aid in noninvasive histology and the understanding of pathophysiology; the development and use of wearable and other monitoring devices; the collection and analysis of big data through machine learning and the development of predictive analytics; 3D printing, 3D visualization, virtual reality, and augmented reality in congenital heart disease; and fellow education.

He currently serves on the AAP’s Section of Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery Early Career Working Group; the American College of Cardiology Early Career Section Leadership Council; and the American Heart Association Center for Health Technology & Innovation (CHTI) Health Technology Advisory Group (HTAG).

In 2019, Dr. Tandon was named a Texas Monthly Super Doctor Rising Star.
