"This is a wonderful and fitting honor for Dr. Dalton, who is at the forefront of personalized medicine and whose work has benefitted countless cancer patients," said Margaret Foti, Ph.D., M.D. (h.c.), chief executive officer of the AACR. "Moreover, Dr. Dalton's contributions extend beyond the lab and clinic to the halls of Congress. As chair of the AACR's Science Policy and Legislative Affairs Committee, he convenes the committee that guides the AACR's policy efforts. Dr. Dalton is a leader who is impacting the field on many levels, and we celebrate his achievement."

Dalton received his doctoral degree in toxicology and medical life sciences and his medical degree from Indiana University. He completed his internship in internal medicine at Indiana University, his residency in medicine at the University of Arizona in Tucson and his fellowships in oncology and clinical pharmacology at the University of Arizona. He is board certified in internal medicine and medical oncology and is an expert in multiple myeloma.
