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.

Mentions: After completing medical school at the University of Missouri in 1973 and internal medicine training at the University, Dr. Fred Gorelick (Figure 19) came to Yale for a fellowship in gastroenterology in 1976. He began basic science training with Dr. James Jamieson at Yale in 1978. During that period, he described calcium-calmodulin dependent protein kinase II. He subsequently worked with Dr. Paul Greengard at Rockefeller University to demonstrate how this enzyme could become calcium-independent and function in memory. His later work has focused on the mechanisms of acute pancreatitis and how digestive enzymes, such as trypsin, are activated within the pancreas during this disease. Dr. Gorelick directs a course, Cell Biology 601, Molecular and Cellular Basis of Human Disease, that helps educate physician scientists. He has been a Professor of Medicine (Digestive Diseases) since 1994 and received in addition a primary appointment as Professor of Cell Biology in 2009.
