The Journal of Cardiac Failure, a peer reviewed medical journal, recently published an article co-authored by James Chen '19. The article, "Pre-transplant Proteinuria is a Risk Factor for Worsening Renal Function in Heart Transplant Candidates," grew out of James's work in his Grade 11 Science Research class at RCDS, which he continued throughout the summer. His research has also been accepted into the Heart Failure Society of America (HFSA) annual scientific meeting. He plans to submit his work to additional local and national science competitions. Congratulations to James and Science Research teacher Ryan Koprespki on this outstanding achievement.
