Aimee Armstrong, MD, FAAP, FACC, FSCAI is the Director of Cardiac Catheterization & Interventional Therapies at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, where she is also a Professor of Pediatrics at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. After graduating with her B.S. in Biology from the University of Michigan, she obtained her medical degree at Northwestern University Medical School. She then completed her pediatric training at Indiana University's Riley Hospital for Children and her pediatric cardiology and interventional cardiology training at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI. She worked as an interventional cardiologist for 11 years at the University of Michigan, where she also served as the Associate Director of the Pediatric Cardiac Catheterization Laboratories.

Since 2015, Dr. Armstrong has been the Director of the Interventional Cardiology Fellowship Program at Nationwide Children's Hospital, where she also formed the Congenital Heart Collaborative Fetal Cardiac Intervention Team. She and Dr. Gregor Krings started the 3DI3 Symposium (International Symposium on 3D Imaging for Interventional Catheterization in CHD), which has held annual conferences in the US and abroad since 2016 and is now formally affiliated with PICS-AICS. Dr. Armstrong's research interests focus on developing completely bioabsorbable and tissue engineered transcatheter heart valves for fetuses. She is also studying computational fluid dynamics using 3D rotational angiography and the use of MR imaging to guide catheterization, in addition to participating in many multicenter clinical device trials. Dr. Armstrong is also a member of the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) Cardiovascular Catherization Board of Directors and is currently serving as President.
