Description of Research Expertise

Dr. Chang's research expertise is in immune mechanisms of viral persistence and liver disease pathogenesis in human hepatitis C and B viruses, with and without HIV confection--using high-dimensional single cell immune analysis via Flow and Mass Cytometry. As the Co-PI of a VA-funded genetic study of cardiometabolic diseases using the VA's Million Veterans Program (MVP), Dr. Chang is also exploring genetic and clinical databases to better understand and improve human health.
