Victoria Parikh MD

Stanford University

Dr. Parikh is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Stanford University and a cardiologist specializing in the care of patients with inherited cardiovascular diseases. She completed clinical cardiology fellowship at Stanford School of Medicine and her medical residency at the University of California, San Francisco. Funded by a research grant from the NIH, she currently studies multiple causes of cardiomyopathy in the laboratory. She has a particular clinical and scientific interest in inherited arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathies, which are an increasingly recognized disease entity. Dr. Parikh is currently using patient cohort genetics, high-throughput molecular biology, and human induced pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes to study variant pathogenicity in this disease. Previously, her work focused on defining the clinical characteristics of an international cohort of patients with RBM20 cardiomyopathy, demonstrating a regional distribution of variant pathogenicity in this gene.
