Determining the Effects of desPLEX

Scientists working under Hugh Taylor, a professor in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Science and the section chief of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at Yale School of Medicine, have come one step closer to elucidating the science behind the dangerous side effects of DES.

The New “Science Hill”: Yale’s Westward Expansion toward Scientific Destiny

The New “Science Hill”: Yale’s Westward Expansion toward Scientific Destiny

Instead of boarding the usual Blue Line that faithfully treks up to Science Hill’s research laboratories, future chemistry, biology, and physics majors at Yale may find themselves boarding trains heading toward Yale’s newest research complex: West Campus.

On the Road to a Quantum Computer

On the Road to a Quantum Computer

A collaboration led by Yale professors Rob Schoelkopf, Michel Devoret, and Steven Girvin is developing a method of communication between qubits, a “quantum bus,” which could be extended to systems involving more qubits working at greater distances.

Memory and Emotion: What Rats can Teach Us

Memory and Emotion: What Rats can Teach Us

The neurobiological substrates of memory and emotion have eluded neuroscientists for decades, but Yale’s researchers are shedding light on the mechanisms by which our brains remember by exploring emotional memory processing in rats.

Synthetic Proteins: Designing Your Own Biomedical Toolkit

Synthetic Proteins: Designing Your Own Biomedical Toolkit

The lab of Dr. Alanna Schepartz, Milton Harris ’29 is changing how researchers study proteins by pioneering research into the design and synthesis of three classes of molecules: miniature proteins, ß-peptide foldamers, and proto-fluorescent probes.

Through the Eyes of Children: What babies and kids think of the world around them

Through the Eyes of Children: What babies and kids think of the world around them

Dr. Frank Keil and Dr. Karen Wynn have shown that infants exhibit certain patterns of learning, including the ability to distinguish between intentional and non-intentional actors and their capabilities.

The Science of Attraction

The Science of Attraction

Instead of their fellow Homo sapiens, Yale professor Antónia Monteiro and researcher Patricia Brennan study the courtship behaviors of butterflies and ducks, and their work has been featured in several programs such as PBS’s “Nature”.

Darwin vs. Dogma: Can Science and Religion be Reconciled?

Darwin vs. Dogma: Can Science and Religion be Reconciled?

Today, science and faith seem to be disparate, and sometimes warring concepts. Four basic tenets of spirituality must be reconciled with the scientific method before the two can coexist in a single system.

Polycystic Kidney Disease: Traditional Chinese medicine inspires modern-day therapy

Polycystic Kidney Disease: Traditional Chinese medicine inspires modern-day therapy

Last year, a team led by Professor Craig Crews of Departments of Molecular, Cellular, & Developmental Biology, Pharmacology, and Chemistry) stumbled onto an herb that could potentially be of use in treating Autosomal Dominant Polycystic Kidney Disease (ADPKD).
