Dalton Science Research Program

~ Dalton Founder Helen Parkhurst

The true business of the school is not to chain students to preconceived ideas, but to set them free to discover their own ideas and to help them bring all their powers to bear upon the problem of learning.

  • About the Dalton Science Research Program

    The Dalton Science Research Program offers students the opportunity to pursue independent science research within the framework of a formal 4-year process.  The research experiences vary widely, with some students pursuing laboratory work at the bench, some doing field-related study, and others taking more transdisciplinary approaches.

    During the first year at Dalton, all students research an area of their choice in connection with Biology.  The DSRP allows students to transition to independent research at an outside institution, usually in the summer between their sophomore and junior years.  Previous DSRP scholars have worked at Rockefeller University, Weill Cornell Medical Center, Sloan Kettering, Yale University, and other world-class research centers in the NYC area.  Their projects have focused on topics such as the intersection of 3-D printing and cardiology, stem cells and cancer research, the immunology of bone marrow transplants, robotic arms, computational biology, molecular biology, and indoor air quality monitoring.
