Yale University was founded in 1701 and known originally as the Collegiate School. Yale University is known for its undergraduate school and graduate schools of Graduate School of Arts & Sciences and Yale Law School. The combined undergraduate and graduate student body tops 11,300 students. Yale has one of the largest endowments in the nation totally $17 billion and its graduate schools of engineering, physics, biology architecture, forestry and the environment are well respected among colleges and universities. Yale confers PhDs, Medical Doctorate degrees, Juris Doctorate and other professional degrees. Yale's new medical school has been awarded Leed Gold certification for its environmentally sustainable construction and features. Yale public affairs is friendly and provides media requests for their research and materials.

Advent of geoengineering may help lower temperature of debate over climate change
Geoengineering, an emerging technology aimed at counteracting the effects of human-caused climate change, also has the potential to counteract political polarization over global warming, according to a new study.
Economist probes the high cost of health care
When Zack Cooper arrived at Yale as assistant professor of public health and economics, he gained access to a first-of-its-kind dataset. Working with the non-profit Health Care Cost Institute, Cooper and colleagues at Carnegie ...
A novel method for identifying the body's 'noisiest' networks
(Phys.org) —A team of scientists led by Yale University systems biologist and biomedical engineer Andre Levchenko has developed a novel method for mapping the biochemical variability, or "noise," in how human cells respond ...
Progress in the fight against quantum dissipation
(Phys.org) —Scientists at Yale have confirmed a 50-year-old, previously untested theoretical prediction in physics and improved the energy storage time of a quantum switch by several orders of magnitude. They report their ...
Tick protein does the trick to fight infection
A protein in ticks that protects them against the cold could inspire a new class of antibiotics for humans, according to a Yale University study.
Thick-skinned dinosaur gets the last laugh
