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: Thomas R. Forbes, PhD, (1911-1988) (Figure 10) joined the faculty in 1945 and became the E.K. Hunt Professor of Anatomy in 1977. Also a fine teacher of gross anatomy, he was a distinguished researcher in the field of reproductive endocrinology, particularly the assay and physiological action of progesterone. In later years, he turned to study of the history of medicine. He was also Associate Dean of Students and for 21 years was Chairman of the Admissions Committee. Edmund S. Crelin (1923-2004), Professor of Anatomy, was another outstanding teacher of gross anatomy and performed research on bone and connective tissues. He published a widely used book on the anatomy of the newborn in 1969. With Allen, Gardner, and Forbes, the department was especially strong in the emerging field of endocrinology in the mid-20th century. The long and distinguished existence of the Department of Anatomy ended in 1974.
