Bill Hoon Chang M.D., Ph.D.

Dr. Bill Chang is an associate professor in the Department of Pediatrics, Division of Hematology/Oncology /BMT.  Dr. Chang completed his fellowship in 2006 at Doernbecher, where he received the Robert C. Neerhout Fellow Award, the Ruth L.  Kirschstein National Research Service Award and the National Childhood Cancer Foundation Research Fellowship (2005). He completed his pediatric residency and  M.D./Ph.D. programs at OHSU. Dr. Chang received his Ph.D. in neuroscience, where he focused on signaling mechanisms within the cell. He currently is a researcher of hematologic malignancies in pediatric, adolescent and young adults. His teaching responsibilities include:  clinical education of residents and fellows; mentorship of students and post-doctoral fellows within the research lab; fellows basic lectures; physician assistant pediatric lecture series.
