Corey Young

Corey is fifth year biomedical science PhD candidate at Morehouse School of Medicine.

Prior to his tenure at Morehouse School of Medicine Corey received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in biology at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University and worked as a data analyst for the Center for Outreach in Alzheimer’s Aging and Community Health where he contributed to the development of a long-term community investment-model for recruiting older African Americans into clinical studies and assessing caregiver burden in different sub-populations.  Corey’s current work focuses on the molecular and epidemiological implications of lung cancer initiation, progression and mortality in different US sub-populations using systems biology approaches and lung cancer risk models.  Corey has continued collaborations with the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics at the National Cancer Institute as an iCURE (Intramural Continuing Umbrella of Research Experiences) fellow and G-SOAR (Graduate Summer Opportunities to Advance Research Program) alumni.
