Anne Chiang, MD, PhD

Patient Care Location



I currently serve as an Associate Professor of Medicine in the Section of Medical Oncology, specializing in thoracic oncology, with a background in translational research in metastasis, as well as extensive experience in clinical practice in both academic and community settings.  My clinical focus has been to build a small cell lung cancer program at Yale with a comprehensive portfolio of clinical trials testing novel therapeutics for these patients.  My research interests focus on development of clinical trials and translational studies to test novel agents and combinations with immune checkpoint inhibitors for both small cell and non-small cell lung tumors.  

I have helped to build our SCH Network and oversee operations, quality efforts and clinical research in our Smilow Care Centers.  I have a particular focus in quality measurement and improvement and have worked to achieve ASCO QOPI Certification for the entire Smilow academic clinical practice.  I have spearheaded quality initiatives locally and nationally for ASCO.  I am dedicated to quality improvement for patient-centered cancer services, and champion the use of patient-reported outcomes.
