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. Yale scientists identified Lyme disease and discovered genes responsible for such disorders as high blood pressure, osteoporosis, dyslexia, and Tourette's syndrome. We did early work on the artificial heart and developed the first insulin pump to treat diabetes. Our investigators are also world-renowned for basic science research, including groundbreaking discoveries about how the cell and its components function at the molecular level.
Our skilled physicians are world-class researchers, pioneering cutting-edge treatments to advance women's healthcare. In the Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Services Department we are currently conducting clinical research in the following areas:
- Evaluating whether c-peptide levels are detectable in women with pre-existing type I diabetes during pregnancy
- Studying pregnancy and birth outcomes in women
