Diabetes: Yale's tradition of transforming care 

Through pioneering studies of insulin pumps, the development of a preventive drug, or elucidation of insulin resistance and its relationship—or not!—to obesity, advances made [at Yale] have repeatedly changed how doctors and patients grapple with diabetes. 



Autoimmune Disease and Skin Problems: Yale Researchers Uncover Clues to Improve Patient Care

Autoimmune diseases, such as scleroderma, that attack the skin can be deadly and disfiguring. The superficial marks borne by people with these conditions can indicate disease inside the body. In some cases, skin changes can even predict the disease’s occurrence. Yale researchers are working to understand the relationships between autoimmune disease and skin problems and how mapping them can help clinicians improve patient care.



The Mechanisms Behind Neurodegenerative Diseases: New Insights on Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and ALS

Research on neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's, ALS, Parkinson's, and Huntington's, examines the roles of misfolded proteins, synapse loss, and lysosomes. 



Teaching Medicine to Machines: Using AI and Machine Learning to Improve Health Care

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are already shaping research and patient care at Yale School of Medicine. Some of the doctors who rely on it explain how these technologies benefit both patients and science.
