Dr. Michael F. Chiang is Knowles Professor of Ophthalmology & Medical Informatics and Clinical Epidemiology at OHSU, and is Associate Director of the OHSU Casey Eye Institute. He is a clinician-scientist who conducts research in the application of biomedical informatics to clinical ophthalmology. His clinical practice focuses on pediatric ophthalmology and adult strabismus. His research work involves telemedicine for diagnosis of retinopathy of prematurity and other ophthalmic diseases, implementation and evaluation of electronic health record systems, modeling of clinical workflow, and computer-based image analysis for clinical diagnosis.

His research has been continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health since 2003, and is also funded by the National Science Foundation and by several charitable foundations. His group has published over 150 peer-reviewed journal papers. He has mentored over 50 postdoctoral fellows, medical students, and graduate students, many of whom have won research awards and eventually moved to top academic programs throughout the country. He directs an OHSU-wide NIH-funded T32 vision science training program for pre-doctoral and post-doctoral students, and co-directs (with Dr. John Morrison) an NIH-funded K12 mentored clinician-scientist program in ophthalmology. He is always looking to collaborate with students, fellows, and clinicians who are nice, bright, and hard-working.

Dr. Chiang received a B.S. in electrical engineering and biology from Stanford University in 1991, and an M.D. from Harvard Medical School and the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology in 1996. He received an M.A. in biomedical informatics from Columbia University, where he was a National Library of Medicine fellow. He completed residency and pediatric ophthalmology fellowship training at the Johns Hopkins Wilmer Eye Institute. He is board-certified in ophthalmology and clinical informatics, and is an elected Fellow of the American College of Medical Informatics. Before coming to OHSU in 2010, he spent over 9 years at Columbia University, where he was Anne S. Cohen Associate Professor of Ophthalmology and Biomedical Informatics, director of medical student education in ophthalmology, and director of the introductory graduate student course in biomedical informatics.

He is past Chair of the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) Medical Information Technology Committee, and is a member of the AAO IRIS Registry Executive Committee and Chair of the AAO IRIS Registry Data Analytics Committee. He is Associate Editor for Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association (JAMIA) and Journal of the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology & Strabismus (JAAPOS), and serves on the Editorial Boards for Ophthalmology, Ophthalmology Retina, Asia-Pacific Journal of Ophthalmology, and EyeNet. He has received numerous clinical, research, and teaching awards.
