When
1998

At age 11, Emily Rosa, of Loveland, Colorado, USA, became the youngest person to have research published in a scientific or medical journal when an article she co-authored appeared in the Journal of the American Medical Association on 1 April 1998.

The article reported an experiment on Touch Therapy conceived by Emily when she was only 8 years old, that later resulted in a science-fair project when she was 9. The 4th grader's project created uproar at the time as the therapy she questioned was being used in over 80 hospitals throughout the United States.
