About Khoa A Nguyen

Khoa Nguyen, Pharm.D., received his Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the University of Michigan, College of Pharmacy. He then completed a fellowship in medical informatics at the VA Indianapolis, HSR&D. After his fellowship, he joined the Regenstrief Institute, Center for Health Services Research as a research scientist and Purdue University, College of Pharmacy as a Visiting Assistant Professor. Currently, Khoa is a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Pharmacotherapy and Translational Research at the University of Florida, College of Pharmacy. His clinical practice is within the UF Health Personalized Medicine Program to help develop and improve pharmacogenomic clinical decision supports. Dr. Khoa Nguyen’s research interests include human-computer interaction, pharmacogenomics, and health informatics. His research focused on improving patient safety through medication use from two approaches: qualitative research and quantitative research. Using the qualitative research approach, Dr. Nguyen wants to utilize human factor engineering and human-computer interaction method to develop and implement pharmacogenomic clinical decision supports (PGx-CDS). PGx-CDS, when implemented, can foster pharmacogenomics service to predict and prevent severe adverse drug reactions from genetic mutations. Using the quantitative research approach, he wants to identify risk factors that can increase the risk of adverse drug reactions from literature and healthcare organizations’ data. Dr. Nguyen also wants to identify subpopulations that can have genetic testing cost-effectively.
