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 11: Russell J. Barrnett 1971. Professor of Anatomy, Chair of Department of Anatomy, Chair of Section of Cytology, Professor of Cell Biology, 1959-1989.

Mentions: Russell J. Barrnett (1920-1989) (Figure 11) received his MD degree from Yale in 1948 and joined the Department of Anatomy in 1959. He was Chairman from 1967 to 1974. From 1974 to 1979, he was Chairman of the Section of Cytology. He was a pioneer in the development and use of cytochemical techniques for the localization of enzymes and other substances in tissues and cells. With David Sabatini and Klaus Bensch, he discovered the use of glutaraldehyde as a fixative for electron microscopy. He was extremely enthusiastic about science and was supportive of young investigators.
