Dr. Andrew Cook is Senior Lecturer and leads the Cardiovascular Morphology and Education Unit at the UCL Institute of Cardiovascular Science / Great Ormond Street Hospital Institute of Child Health, London, UK.
He has an international reputation for providing education, training and expertise in the structural architecture of the heart including major textbooks on surgical anatomy of the heart and fetal cardiology. He is founder of the website www.cardiacmorphology.com and advises companies on anatomy for device design and simulation.
During this work he has developed specific expertise in correlating cardiac structure with imaging from fetus to adult. Current areas of research are: micro-imaging cardiac architecture using micro-computed tomography and phase-contrast synchrotron imaging; and deep-phenotyping of heart defects in mutant mouse embryos using high throughput, high-resolution 3D imaging (www.dmdd.org.uk)
