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 basic science research, including groundbreaking discoveries about how the cell and its components function at the molecular level.
In Pulmonary Critical Care & Sleep Medicine, we have a wide and varied research portfolio that spans the origins of disease to such clinical issues such as cognitive impairment in the Medical Intensive Care Unit.
