Significant infrastructure investments in recent years assure that the medical school’s contributions to biomedical science will continue. In 2003, the 457,000-square-foot Anlyan Center for Medical Research and Education was dedicated, increasing research space at the medical school by 25 percent. Four years later, the Amistad Building, which houses the Yale Stem Cell Center, the Interdepartmental Program in Vascular Biology and Therapeutics, and the Human and Translational Immunology Program, opened, and, in 2009, The Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale–New Haven began admitting patients. The acquisition, in 2007, of West Campus, the 136-acre facility that straddles West Haven and Orange, guarantees that cutting-edge medical and scientific research will continue well into the future.
