History of the Department of Cell Biology at Yale School of Medicine, 1813-2010.

Lentz TL - Yale J Biol Med (2011)

Bottom Line: Cell Biology at Yale had its origins in the Department of Anatomy that existed from the beginning of classes at the Medical Institution of Yale College in 1813.The formation and development of the Section and Department of Cell Biology in the second half of the 20th century to the present time are described.Biographies and research activities of the chairs and key faculty in anatomy and cell biology are provided.

ABSTRACT
The Department of Cell Biology at the Yale University School of Medicine was established in 1983. It was preceded by the Section of Cell Biology, which was formed in 1973 when George E. Palade and collaborators came to Yale from the Rockefeller University. Cell Biology at Yale had its origins in the Department of Anatomy that existed from the beginning of classes at the Medical Institution of Yale College in 1813. This article reviews the history of the Department of Anatomy at Yale and its evolution into Cell Biology that began with the introduction of histology into the curriculum in the 1860s. The formation and development of the Section and Department of Cell Biology in the second half of the 20th century to the present time are described. Biographies and research activities of the chairs and key faculty in anatomy and cell biology are provided.

Figure 5: Research Laboratory, 1924. Laboratory in the Department of Anatomy prior to the opening of the Sterling Hall of Medicine in 1925.

Mentions: In the Department of Anatomy, there was a lecture hall on the second floor that could hold 73 people (the Anatomy Lecture Hall). There were also staff rooms, secretary’s office, research laboratories (Figure 5), anatomical museum, and museum preparation room. On the third floor, there were three large histology and neuroanatomy teaching laboratories. These three teaching labs remained essentially unchanged until 1970. An adjacent room served as a histological preparation room and laboratory for the research technician. There were four dissecting rooms and a topographic anatomy and study room. The fourth floor had a bone preparation room, an animal operating room, a recovery room for animals under observation, and a roof for bleaching bones and making corrosion preparations. The subbasement contained a cadaver storage room, a refrigerator capable of holding six cadavers, a large electrically driven band saw, embalming room, and storage space for skeletons and dissections.
