Surgical Research

At Yale Surgical Research we perform innovative state–of–the–art basic, clinical and translational research — whether in the laboratory, on the computer, in the operating room, or on the ward — including:

  • Translational Research
  • Basic Science Research
  • Clinical Research
Over 50% of our Surgical Faculty conduct surgical research with medical students, residents, Postdoctoral Associates/Fellows and Postgraduate Fellows from all over the world. This international collaboration produces more than 700 peer–reviewed publications per year, many are published in the top pure science journals (Nature, Science, and Cell). Extramural funding, from the NIH, the Veterans Administration and other major public and private funders, tops $7 million per year. 

At Yale Surgical Research, cutting–edge research is being translated from bench to bedside and back to bench. Disease–oriented research conducted at the cellular, molecular and organ level is being applied in the clinical setting and returned to the lab for refinement. Bi–weekly meetings of researchers across campus bring together the best minds to present fresh, inventive approaches to surgery methods and methodologies as well as to discuss new findings in clinically targeted bench research. In this rich academic and collaborative environment, the future leaders in academic surgery as well as in private practice are being created today at Yale Surgery. As the Director of Yale Surgical Research, I invite you to join our Department as we take the challenge of improving the quality of life for patients by embracing both basic science research and clinical outcomes to tailor new directions in translational research.
