Wei Wang, MD, PhD
Based on the CTSI-funded mapping work, Wang received a critical KL2 Mentored Research Investigator Training Award in 2010. Naming Boninger and Schwartz as his senior mentors, the grant enabled Wang to take the lead on a new clinical trial combining the mapping data from his pilot work with the ECoG technology, already in clinical use with epilepsy patients, and put the device into a paralyzed patient.

The Clinical Research Scholars Program (CRSP) is a multidisciplinary career development program that is supported by the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) through the K12 mechanism. The program prepares scientists from a broad range of disciplines, specialties, and subspecialties for independent careers in clinical or translational research. It brings together the collaborative efforts of the University of Pittsburgh schools of the health sciences (the School of Medicine, the Graduate School of Public Health, the School of Dental Medicine, the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences, the School of Nursing, and the School of Pharmacy), the many multidisciplinary research centers at the University, and the extensive clinical entities that comprise the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC).
The CRSP scholars engage in diverse types of multidisciplinary clinical research, including large and small clinical trials, patient-oriented research, epidemiologic studies, health services research, and translational research. Every scholar has the opportunity to pursue educational offerings pertaining to research ethics and regulations, best practices in clinical research, work in multidisciplinary teams, and management and leadership skills. Mentoring is an integral component of the CRSP and is provided by a team of highly experienced, federally funded senior investigators.
I've learned a LOT! I am sure without the K12 training my applications would not have been as competitive.
