Andrew Taylor, Acting Chief Operating Officer at GOSH
Professor Andrew Taylor is an expert in cardiovascular imaging, and has established the Centre for Cardiovascular MR at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).

He is currently Divisional Co-Chair and Divisional Director for the West Division. He has worked at GOSH since 2003.

I continue to be inspired by the generosity of patients and parents who give so willingly of their time for clinical research

Andrew Taylor


  • cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT) and hybrid imaging in congenital heart disease (children and adults) and acquired paediatric heart disease
  • imaging assessment of valvular heart disease
  • post-mortem imaging in fetuses, neonates and children


Professor Taylor was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge (BA Hons. – Zoology) and Balliol College, Oxford (BMBCh). He did his medical training in London (MRCP) and an MD at the Royal Brompton Hospital, London in 'cardiovascular MR of coronary artery disease', for which he was awarded the Sir Lionel Whitby Medal. He did his Radiology training in Wales and at St. Georges Hospital, London, before doing a year of paediatric and interventional cardiovascular MR at Guy’s Hospital, London.

He is a Fellow of the Royal College of Radiologist (FRCR) and Physicians (FRCP). He is a member of the British Society of Cardiovascular Imaging executive committee and is the academic member of the London Deanery Specialist Training Committee for Paediatric Cardiology. He held the Royal College of Radiologists’ Roentgen Professorship in 2006 and was recently honoured by the British Institute of Radiology with the Mackenzie Davidson Memorial Medal (2011).

Research Interests

Professor Taylor is Professor of Cardiovascular Imaging at University College London. He is the Head of Cardiovascular Imaging at the UCL Institute of Cardiovascular Science. His main areas of research interest are: the assessment of cardiac physiology using cross-sectional imaging; the development of models of cardiovascular structure, physiology and disease; the development of novel methods to design and assess new cardiovascular devices, the development of image registration methods in cardiovascular imaging; and the assessment of the role of less invasive autopsy in fetuses, neonates and infants.
