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 13: George E. Palade 1970. Sterling Professor of Cell Biology, Chair of Section of Cell Biology, 1973-1990.

Mentions: George E. Palade (1912-2008) [19,20] (Figure 13) received his MD from the School of Medicine of the University of Bucharest, Romania. He was a member of the faculty of that school until 1945, when he came to the United States for postdoctoral studies. He joined Albert Claude at the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research in 1946 and was appointed Assistant Professor at the Rockefeller in 1948. He progressed from Assistant Professor to full Professor and head of the Laboratory of Cell Biology until 1973, when he moved to Yale as Professor and Chair of the Section of Cell Biology. He was Sterling Professor of Cell Biology from 1975 to 1983. He became a Senior Research Scientist, Professor Emeritus of Cell Biology, and Special Advisor to the Dean in 1983. In 1990, he moved to the University of California San Diego as Professor of Medicine in Residence and Dean for Scientific Affairs. He was a member of the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He received a number of honorary degrees and prizes, which include a Nobel Prize in 1974 (shared with Albert Claude and Christian DeDuve) and the National Medal of Science in 1986.
