In 2015, this program was extended to Ventura County, California, as the PRESTO (Prediction of Sudden death in multi-ethnic communities) Study. Dr. Chugh has led an independently and continuously funded research program since 2001 and has published over 225 peer-reviewed scientific in the fields of cardiac electrophysiology and sudden cardiac death. He is a peer reviewer for more than 10 scientific journals and is on the editorial boards of several, including Circulation, the Journal of the American College of Cardiology (JACC), HeartRhythm journal and JACC Clinical Electrophysiology.
