Andrew Young Chang
Ph.D. Student in Epidemiology and Clinical Research, admitted Summer 2020
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research interests center around the epidemiology and health services research of heart disease, with an emphasis on vulnerable populations both international and domestic. Global health projects include mixed methods research in women of reproductive age in Uganda with rheumatic heart disease, with epidemiological profiling of this patient population. Domestic investigation includes understanding the impact of health insurance plan on the treatment of atrial fibrillation.
Steven D. Chang, MD
Robert C. and Jeannette Powell Neurosciences Professor and, by courtesy, of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery (OHNS) and of Neurology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Clinical research includes studies in the treatment of cerebrovascular disorders, such as aneurysms and AVMs, as well as the use of radiosurgery to treat tumors and vascular malformations of the brain and spine.
Dr. Chang is C0-Director of the Cyberknife Radiosurgery Program.
Dr. Chang is also the head of the The Stanford Neuromolecular Innovation Program with the goal of developing new technologies to improve the diagnosis and treatment of patients affected by neurological conditions.
Tara I. Chang
Associate Professor of Medicine (Nephrology)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research focuses on issues such as blood pressure control, coronary revascularization, and the comparative effectiveness of cardioprotective medications in patients with chronic kidney disease, with the long-term goal of improving cardiovascular outcomes in these high-risk patients.

Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering
Bio Our group's research is focused at the intersection of mechanics and biology. We are interested in elucidating the underlying molecular mechanisms that give rise to the complex mechanical properties of cells, extracellular matrices, and tissues . Conversely, we are investigating how complex mechanical cues influence important biological processes such as cell division, differentiation, or cancer progression. Our approaches involve using force measurement instrumentation, such as atomic force microscopy, to exert and measure forces on materials and cells at the nanoscale, and the development of material systems for 3D cell culture that allow precise and independent manipulation of mechanical properties.
