Scientific Interests

Dr. Chiang's research interests are in: 1) Simulation of energy interactions within biological tissue using finite-element modeling techniques; 2) Validation of cancer models with both ex-vivo and in-vivo animal experiments, particularly in using large animal tumor models; and 3) Translation of benchtop engineering research into clinically-relevant findings that can directly impact patient care.
