Poney Chiang received a PhD in biomedical research from the Institute of Medical Science, University of Toronto, followed by a Master’s degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine from Pacific College of Health & Science in New York.  He is an adjunct professor and founder of the Integrative Acupuncture Certificate Program for the Faculty of Health at York University (Toronto). Poney is also a professor at the American Neuro-Acupuncture Institute in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

He is a leading expert in peripheral neuro-anatomy of acupoints and their associated neuro-modulation needle techniques. Poney has been invited to teach at various international TCM and biomedical acupuncture symposiums around the world. The next phase in his research is using MRI to define the transcranial relationship between scalp acupoints and cortical functional regions.

Poney is the primary author revising Fundamentals of Chinese Acupuncture, (Ellis & Wiseman, Paradigm Publication) which is to feature original dissection and illustrations for more than 400 distinct acupoints.  Under his supervision, his students have published research in peer-reviewed journals such as Journal of Chinese Medicine and Medical Acupuncture. Former students have become sought-after anatomy instructors and consultants to develop dissection curriculum for Chinese medicine institutions.
