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.

Mentions: Harold Saxon Burr (1889-1973) [16] (Figure 9) did his graduate work under Ross G. Harrison and was granted the PhD degree from Yale in 1915. In 1914, he became Instructor in Anatomy. On the retirement of Harry Burr Ferris in 1933, he was appointed E.K. Hunt Professor of Anatomy. He was a neuroanatomist and published 93 papers on the development of peripheral nerves and the central nervous system and on bioelectric phenomena in various organisms. Leon Stansfield Stone (1893-1980) received his PhD from Yale in 1921 and became an Instructor in the same year. He was Bronson Professor of Comparative Anatomy from 1940 to 1961. He performed research on regeneration of the visual system in amphibians. Edgar Allen (1892-1943), previously Dean of the University of Missouri School of Medicine, was professor and Chair of Anatomy from 1933 to 1943 [17]. He was a leading authority on the mechanism of sex hormones and discovered estrogen.
