    • Assistant Professor of Medicine, Division of Cardiovascular Medicine School of Medicine
    • Co-Director, OHSU Multidisciplinary Ventricular Arrhythmia Program

Dr. Nazer directs the OHSU Translational Electrophysiology Laboratory, where his research focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of ventricular arrhythmias (premature ventricular complexes (PVCs) and ventricular tachycardia (VT)). In collaboration with acoustic physicists and biomedical engineers, his laboratory develops new diagnostic and therapeutic ablation tools for the treatment of PVCs and VT, particularly those using ultrasound as an energy source.

As Co-Director of the OHSU Multidisciplinary Ventricular Arrhythmia Program, he collaborates with psychologists to investigate the psychosocial symptoms associated with VT and defibrillator shocks, and therapies to alleviate these symptoms. More information about this program can be found here:
