Biomedicine in the New Century

Yale Medicine Magazine, 2011 - Autumn


In the signature event held on April 28 and 29 to celebrate the School of Medicine’s 200th year, 15 world-renowned scientists, clinicians, and scholars—including seven Nobel laureates—gathered to give lectures on “Biomedicine in the New Century.”

“This bicentennial symposium is really the most important event of our celebration,” Dean Robert J. Alpern, M.D., Ensign Professor of Medicine, told the audience in the Mary S. Harkness Auditorium. “We now find ourselves in a great era of advances in biomedical research. When we got together to decide how to celebrate our anniversary, there was uniform agreement that it had to be done with a scientific symposium, bringing in scientists of the highest regard. I think you are in for a real treat.”
