Ellen Chang, Sc.D.
Senior Managing Scientist
Epidemiology & Computational Biology
  • Menlo Park

Dr. Chang has 17 years of experience in designing, conducting, and interpreting epidemiologic studies, with a particular focus on studies of cancer and other chronic diseases. She provides scientific consultation on the potential human health effects of various chemicals (such as dioxins, chlorinated solvents, pesticides, PCBs, and perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances), air pollutants, metals and metalloids, fibers, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, electromagnetic fields, and nutrients. She has expertise in qualitatively and quantitatively synthesizing the weight of epidemiologic evidence on causal effects of environmental exposures.

Dr. Chang’s recent projects include evaluations of the epidemiologic evidence on glyphosate, TCDD, and perchloroethylene in association with non-Hodgkin lymphoma and other cancers; perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances in association with immune-related conditions; fine particulate matter in association with all-cause mortality; and organophosphate insecticides in association with birth and developmental outcomes. Dr. Chang also frequently conducts and coordinates analyses of cancer incidence, mortality, and survival in population-based cancer registries.

Dr. Chang has led original research studies of cancers of the head and neck, nasopharynx, stomach, liver, lung and bronchus, skin, breast, uterus, ovary, prostate, thyroid, and lymphatic system. These studies focused on a wide range of exposures including genetic variation, physical activity, body size, diet and nutrition, alcohol consumption, tobacco smoking, ultraviolet radiation, immunologic biomarkers, microbial infections, use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and other medications, use of hormone therapy and oral contraceptives, reproductive factors, medical history, family structure, and demographic characteristics. In addition, Dr. Chang has conducted cancer surveillance research at one of the U.S. National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) registries, and contributed to community-based research on hepatitis B and liver cancer awareness, detection, prevention, and medical management at the Asian Liver Center at Stanford University.

Dr. Chang earned her undergraduate degree in English and American literature and language from Harvard College. She earned her Sc.D. (Doctor of Science) in epidemiology with a minor in biostatistics from the Harvard School of Public Health, and she completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the Karolinska Institute. She is a member of the Stanford Cancer Institute and a Consulting Assistant Professor in the Division of Epidemiology, Department of Health Research and Policy at the Stanford University School of Medicine. Dr. Chang has published more than 150 peer-reviewed research articles and reviews, and eight book chapters.
