Collaborative Research
Through teamwork, we create an extraordinary synergy. Our researchers are encouraged to collaborate—both with investigators at the University of Louisville and other universities. Together, we apply our expertise to genetic research, pathological interpretation, biomechanics, functional anatomy, instrumentation, and statistical analysis.

Mentoring Careers
We foster the careers of  undergraduate, graduate, and medical school students. More than half of the summer undergraduate students whom we have mentored have gone on to medical school. As evidence, several of our recent students published "The Impact of Surgical Research on Career Success A Forty-Year Follow-up of Undergraduate Experiences" in Annals of Surgery, which is a survey of students who worked at the Price Institute.We invite you to explore the many research opportunities offered at the Price Institute.
