The scientific research conducted by North High School senior Tyler Chang will be published in the Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology. Chang’s research has focused on improving the success rate of colon cancer detection through technology and behavior modification.
Chang, a member of the North High Science Research Program, began her research at a community outpatient surgery center the summer before her freshman year. His research examined the adenoma detection rates (ADRs) – or colon cancer detection indicators – of endoscopists who used new full-spectrum endoscopy technology (Fuse) for three years and switched back to traditional endoscopes. forward-looking (R-TFV).
Two months into his research, Chang’s mentor was diagnosed with cancer and could no longer serve as the principal investigator. Undeterred, Chang continued his work with minimal guidance, using his knowledge of the scientific method, scientific writing, and statistical calculations he learned in the science research course.
“Completing this project and publishing the article was one of the most challenging but rewarding experiences for me,” Chang said. Data selection and the actual research took six months, followed by nine months of writing and reviewing the article with its co-authors and medical journal editors. “Changes in Adenoma Detection Rate from Full-spectrum Endoscopy to Standard Forward-viewing Endoscopy”, prepared by Chang, Blair Lewis, MD, Netanel Deutsch, MA, and Benjamin Nulsen, MD, will be published in an upcoming issue of the Journal of Gastro- clinical enterology.
“What I’ve found most inspiring about this process is that there are still so many unanswered scientific questions,” Chang said. “Through scientific research, the answer to many of these questions can be discovered and published, adding to the collective knowledge of the world. It is an honor to contribute to this knowledge base.
