Professional Interests: My research interests remain focused on neuropharmacology, specifically cellular and molecular aspects of receptor and ion channel structure and function. Previously, I investigated the assembly and electrophysiological properties of GABA type A receptor and calcium channel subunits. Currently, my research is focused on alpha2 adrenergic receptor structure as it relates to subcellular location within neurons, as well as the role of accessory proteins in modifying receptor expression and trafficking within cells and neurons. My clinical expertise lies in critical care medicine and the perioperative care of high-risk patients, such as liver transplant, trauma, and neurosurgical patients, including air medical transport of critically ill patients.

Triple boarded in psychiatry, neurology, and interventional pain, she successfully developed and expanded a program improving cognitive and physical functioning, pain control, and psychiatric symptom burden amongst cancer patients and survivors. Dr. Chang founded City of Hope’s Multidisciplinary Pain Boards, and developed acute and regional pain services aimed at reducing both physical and psychological contributions to pain. Under her direction, access to interventional pain treatments for patients with acute and chronic cancer pain has improved with significantly positive outcomes. As a physician licensed in acupuncture, Dr. Chang is currently developing acupuncture protocols to be disseminated in treatment of cancer related pain and anxiety. Dr. Chang has demonstrated clinical excellence and research commitment to quality of life and symptom management for all patients suffering from cancer.
