Dr. Nguyen MD, Ph.D. attended medical school at Utrecht University in the Netherlands where he graduated in 2002. He performed his PhD on the role of connective tissue growth factor and bone morphogenetic proteins in diabetic nephropathy at the department of Pathology at University Medical Center Utrecht (UMCU) that he finished in 2008 under the supervision of Professor Goldschmeding.

After completion of his residency in Pathology at the UMCU in 2010, he obtained a position as Pathologist at the same institute with specialty in renal pathology. In 2011-2012, Dr. Nguyen worked as a visiting scholar and postdoctoral fellow at the department of Pathology (professor C.E. Alpers) and the department of Nephrology (professor J.S. Duffield) at the University of Washington, Seattle, USA. The main research interest of Dr. Nguyen is unraveling the mechanisms behind chronic kidney disease.
