Yale researchers have introduced countless medical and health advances over the last century, including the first success with antibiotics in the United States and the first use of chemotherapy to treat cancer. Yale scientists identified Lyme disease and discovered genes responsible for such disorders as high blood pressure, osteoporosis, dyslexia, and Tourette's syndrome. We did early work on the artificial heart and developed the first insulin pump to treat diabetes. Our investigators are also world-renowned for its basic science research, including groundbreaking discoveries about how the cell and its components function at the molecular level.
The Department of Radiology & Biomedical Imaging participates in a wide variety of clinical trials and cutting-edge research. We partner with doctors and scientists from a variety of medical specialties and research backgrounds to pioneer advancements in new imaging techniques and therapies.
