Research Programs

  • The Academic Hospitalists provide care for patients hospitalized on General Medical, Step-Down ICU, and observation units at Yale New Haven Hospital (YNHH), a 1,541-bed two-campus facility located within walking distance of the university campus. 

    The team’s work spans a variety of areas, including cost awareness among medical professionals, understanding variation in costs at the hospital-level, optimizing care escalations for deteriorating patients, and enhancing care transitions.
  • CHIRAL is a partnership between Yale New Haven Hospital and the Yale School of Medicine. The center brings together a multidisciplinary team to better understand and creatively solve complex patient safety issues.
  • The Clinical Epidemiology Research Center (CERC) at the VA Connecticut Healthcare System located in West Haven, is a collaboration between VA Cooperative Studies Program, VA Connecticut Healthcare System, and the Yale University School of Medicine.
  • SILVER-AMI is the first, large observational, mixed-methods study of the older (≥75 years) population experiencing a heart attack.
  • The mission of the COPPER Center at Yale is to improve cancer care and to decrease the burden of cancer on individual patients as well as society.
  • The aim of the program is to prepare investigators for careers focusing on improving medical outcomes for patients with, and at risk for drug abuse, addiction, and HIV, by integrating prevention and treatment in general medical settings including emergency departments and primary care, and HIV, adolescent, and women’s health clinics.
  • The Equity Research and Innovation Center (ERIC) at Yale University has two overarching goals. The first goal is to develop and disseminate evidence-based models to narrow health and healthcare inequity gaps. The second goal is to provide research support infrastructure for Yale faculty and affiliated community-based organizations.
  • The Yale Occupational and Environmental Medicine Program (YOEMP) is dedicated to preventing occupational and environmental illness and injury through patient care, consultative activities, training, and research.
  • PRIME aims to improve our understanding of the complex interactions between pain and associated chronic disease and behavioral health factors and to develop and implement effective interventions that can reduce pain, its negative impacts on emotional and physical functioning, and overall disease burden by employing principles of medical informatics, behavioral science, and health services research, and to improve women Veterans' health.
  • The p2P Lab focuses on the use of “play,” in the form of videogame play, for the purposes of health promotion, risk reduction, social good, and educational interventions. We harness videogame technology to create engaging and effective methods to convey information and teach skills that lead to behavior change, translating to healthier and safer lives.
  • The goal of the Yale Program in Addiction Medicine is to expand access to and improve the effectiveness of prevention and treatment services for substance use. We focus on research, education, prevention, and treatment.
  • The Program for Biomedical Ethics at Yale School of Medicine provides multidisciplinary leadership regarding the ethical and social aspects of health care and medical research.
  • The Yale Program for Medicine, Spirituality, & Religion is founded upon the belief that holistic healing concerns both the wellness of the body and the spirit. We seek to understand the implications of religious practice, communal support, and intrinsic belief on health and wellness.
  • The RAMS Program is intended to make important contributions to the development of the next generation of addiction physician researchers in order to provide better care for patients with and at risk for substance use disorders.
  • The Transitions Clinic Network (TCN) is a national network of medical homes for individuals with chronic diseases recently released from incarceration.
  • The Yale University-Mayo Clinic Center of Excellence in Regulatory Science and Innovation (CERSI) is a joint effort between Yale University, Mayo Clinic, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to create infrastructure for regulatory science knowledge generation, conduct research to address key gaps in knowledge, and develop tools to support regulatory decision-making and the overall mission of FDA.
  • The Veterans Aging Cohort Study (VACS) is a prospective, observational cohort study of HIV- positive and an age/race/site matched control group of HIV- negative veterans in care in the United States. The study's aim is to understand the role of comorbid medical and psychiatric disease in determining clinical outcomes in HIV infection.
