Mentors for START@Yale Students

Please Note: Mentor list is preliminary and may be updated.

A major goal of the START@Yale program is to provide participants with the opportunity to undertake research during the summer before the first year of medical school.

We encourage START@Yale participants to perform research with physician-scientist mentors who are role models for successful career development that involved both research and clinical training. Examples of clinically trained physician-scientist faculty members are listed below. A link is provided for information about the research interests of each of these faculty members.

NOTE: Those mentors indicated with an asterisk (*) can serve as mentor for either MD or MD/PhD participants.
