Our principal investigators include Gail D’Onofrio MD, MS and Patrick G. O’Connor MD, MPH.

The Core Faculty along with Drs. D’Onofrio and O’Connor are expert researchers and mentors. They will be responsible for assuring the overall progress of all scholars and that all individual scholar milestones and programmatic objectives are met. They will assign research and academic mentors to each scholar, teach core K12 coursework, provide oversight, and may also serve as an individual scholar’s research and/or academic mentor.

In addition to the Core faculty, many faculty members serve as mentors to the scholars.
Other faculty members at Yale that are seasoned educators, clinicians, or researchers in related areas that will serve as scholar resources.
