Current Research and Scholarly Interests The long-term goals of my translational research are to evaluate novel radiofrequency (RF) ablation strategies, catheter designs to improve procedural efficacy and safety outcomes, and molecular targets to enhance RF ablation of atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. We have translational and clinical studies on multiple ablation catheter designs as well as ablation strategies to improve safety and maximize RF delivery during ablation for atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. We have both in vivo and ex vivo animal models (small and large animal) of atrial and ventricular arrhythmias.
At the translational level, our ablation biophysics studies include utilizing various nanomaterials to help facilitate ablation as well as designing specialized catheters to improve safety and efficacy of ablation. We are studying specific variations in catheter design to improve ablation; testing delivery methods of facilitating agents; optimizing biophysical parameters; determining the precise RF electromagnetic field to minimize collateral damage; and studying magnetic driven facilitating agents.
At the clinical level, my research has focused on the application of biophysical principles to AF and VT ablation outcomes, in addition to research related to adult congenital heart disease. Projects include a multicenter consortium on the use of EP studies in risk stratification of sudden death for Tetralogy of Fallot (ToF) patients undergoing pulmonary valve replacement; perioperative EP studies and VT ablation in ToF patients; outcomes in multicenter cohorts of ACHD patients undergoing AF and VT ablations; and outcomes in ACHD subpopulations undergoing EP procedures, such as those with bicuspid aortic valves, right atrial myopathies, and others.
Clinical Associate Professor, Medicine - Gastroenterology & Hepatology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests focus on disorder of gastrointestinal motility. Specifically, those related to nausea and vomiting with or without gastroparesis, irritable bowel syndrome and chronic abdominal pain. My research focuses on understanding the cause of symptoms and development of new treatments targeting either symptom control and disease modification.

Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Gastroenterology & Hepatology
Bio Dr. Nguyen is board certified in Gastroenterology and Hepatology. He holds a clinical teaching appointment at the Stanford School of Medicine.
Dr. Nguyen's expertise include all aspects of general gastroenterology and hepatology, but he has a particular interest in new imaging techniques in colon cancer screening, inflammatory bowel disease and irritable bowel syndrome. Dr. Nguyen is also performing fecal microbiota transplantation (stool transplants) for patients who suffer from chronic, relapsing Clostridium difficile infection and has had over 90% cure rate.
In his free time, he enjoys traveling, golfing, skiing, hiking, healthy cooking and spending time with his family. He enjoys the personal rapport that he is able to establish with his patients and appreciate the opportunity to help them as best that he can.
