Dr. Chang conducts research in corneal neovascularization with a focus on the role of endostatin and MMP-7-derived fragments of collagen XVIII in corneal angiogenesis and lymphangiogenesis. He also studies the molecular mechanisms of endostatin short peptides that inhibit VEGF-C binding to its receptors, VEGFR-2 and -3. His research program has been funded by NEI. He has over 50 original articles published in peer-reviewed journals and he has mentored more than 30 research fellows.
