Biography: My name is Dalton Price. 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.  We have organized partnerships with professors at fifteen universities, and helped thousands of students in over 100 countries.

Over the last four years, I have participated in both microbiology and neuroscience research and am now leading an investigation studying the relationship between the gut microbiome and peripheral nervous system. 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. I am also extremely interested in microbiology and hope to change the dynamic surrounding the human microbiome in medicine by making healthcare professionals more keen on its importance and on using it as an integral piece in assessing any medical condition.
