About Dr. Tseng


Dr. Victor Tseng is a Pulmonary and Critical Care physician-scientist in Atlanta, Georgia. He is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine. He is currently licensed to practice medicine in Colorado and Georgia. He is affiliated with Emory University Hospitals, the Atlanta VA Medical Center, and Grady Hospital.

Dr. Tseng completed specialty training in Pulmonology and Critical Care Medicine at the University of Colorado & National Jewish Health program in Denver. He has specific interests and expertise in chronic respiratory failure, home mechanical ventilation, unexplained dyspnea (shortness of breath), exercise physiology, high altitude medicine, pulmonary hypertension, pulmonary complications of liver disease, and interstitial lung diseases. He is involved with didactic and bedside teaching of fellows, residents, and medical students.

Dr. Tseng conducts research on how blood vessels in the lung become dysfunctional, leading to pulmonary hypertension (PH). He has expertise in the cell and molecular biology of hyaluronan, a special sugar chain found in high levels throughout the lung. He is currently investigating how hyaluronan can rewire the metabolism of pulmonary vascular cells. Dr. Tseng hopes that a detailed understanding of these pathways will lead to a new class of effective therapies for patients suffering from PH and other lung disorders.

Dr. Tseng is a member of the American Thoracic Society, the Pulmonary Vascular Research Institute, and the American Physician-Scientist Association.

In his free time, Dr. Tseng enjoys alpinism, traveling, music composition, ski racing, and playing the piano and violin in chamber ensembles.
