Yale researchers have introduced countless medical and health advances over the last century, including the first success with antibiotics in the United States and the first use of chemotherapy to treat cancer. University scientists identified Lyme disease and discovered genes responsible for such disorders as high blood pressure, osteoporosis, dyslexia, and Tourette's syndrome. Early work on the artificial heart and the creation of the first insulin pump took place at Yale. Yale is also world-renowned for its basic science research, including seminal discoveries about how the cell and its components function at the molecular level.
