CTSI K Scholar Program Mentor Pool

Each Scholar will identify a Primary Scientific Mentor with expertise in their area of research. The Mentoring Team will include the Primary Scientific Mentor, a CTSI K Scholar Program Mentor from the pool, a Quantitative Mentor, and the Scholar acting as his/her own Self-Mentor. Distant or local mentors can be included based on needs.  The KL2 Program Lead may assist in identifying a CTSI K Scholar Program Mentor and/or a Quantitative Mentor upon request from the table below.
