Biography: My name is Dalton Price and I am a student at Cornell University studying Policy Analysis and Management on a pre-medical, health policy track. I am the Founder and Executive Director of YouResearch, a global nonprofit designed to promote research opportunities among youth and uphold the notion of “Impact Through Research." To this day, we have organized partnerships with professors at fifteen universities as well as helped thousands of students in over one-hundred countries across the globe.

In the future, I hope to complete a joint MD/MBA program and work in the pharmaceutical industry, focusing on public health, research and development, and policy. In addition, I am extremely interested in microbiology and hope to change the dynamic surrounding the human microbiome in medicine, making healthcare professionals more keen of its importance and using it as an integral piece in assessing any medical condition. I have participated in both microbiology and neuroscience research over the last four years and am now leading an investigation studying the relationship between the gut microbiome and peripheral nervous system.
