CYSHCNet is committed to the training of Emerging Investigators (EI) as well as youth/family partners in CYSHCN research. Two programs prepare EIs and youth/family partners to carry out rigorous, multi-site research studies: Emerging Investigator Guided Research Program  and Youth & Family Basic Research Methods class. Through these two programs CYSHCNet supports new investigators and youth/family partner research projects.


CYSHCNet leaders and content experts are available to mentor Emerging Investigators through a one-year guided research program. A list of topics for which mentoring is available is found here. This list changes as CYSHCN faculty is added to the Network. For topics that are not listed, please contact us with a request and we will help connect you to the right people.
