Dr. Andronikou joined CHOP in 2018 as the vice chair of clinical research in the Department of Radiology, which has a flourishing research program that uses state-of-the-art technologies to disseminate innovate work in imaging for infants, children, and pregnant women.

In his role as vice chair, Dr. Andronikou helps oversee a growing translational and clinical research program in the department that is broadly related to and impacts nearly every pediatric subspecialty, and includes interventional radiology, cardiovascular, lymphatic imaging, pulmonary imaging, and oncology, among many others.

Dr. Andronikou serves as a critical leader the department while maintaining his own robust research program. In addition to earning two PhDs and acquiring extensive experience in both pediatric body imaging and pediatric neuroradiology training, he has contributed to more than 270 publications, written 6 books, and has vast experience in the organization of dedicated pediatric radiology research infrastructure and support.

He works closely with Timothy Roberts, PhD, vice chair for imaging research, to advance translational research by creating strong and seamless collaborations with PhD scientists in the department. In addition, Dr. Andronikou provides key support for the department’s overall research strategy, and has specific responsibility for the newly created Radiology Research Core.
