Collaborating Communities

The School of Engineering & Applied Science’s faculty participates in and leads many Centers focused on research and science and engineering interdisciplinary initiatives.

Physical and Engineering Biology

Yale's Integrated Graduate Program in Physical and Engineering Biology (IGPPEB) seeks to train a new generation of scientists, who are skilled at applying physics and engineering methods and reasoning to biological research, and sufficiently sophisticated in their biological training, such that they will readily identify, and tackle, cutting-edge problems in the life sciences.

Raymond & Beverly Sackler Institute for Biological, Physical and Engineering Sciences

The Raymond and Beverly Sackler Institute for Biological, Physical and Engineering Sciences brings together faculty from the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, the School of Medicine and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, enabling transformative research and teaching initiatives.

Center for Green Chemistry and Green Engineering at Yale

The Mission of The Center for Green Chemistry and Green Engineering at Yale is to advance sustainability by catalyzing the effectiveness of the Green Chemistry and Green Engineering community.

Material Science Research Center (CRISP)

The Center for Research on Interface Structures and Phenomena (CRISP) explores the properties and potential applications of the surfaces of materials and the interfaces between materials (the border region where two materials come into contact). CRISP was launched in 2005 and is funded by the National Science Foundation as one of its Centers of Excellence for Materials Research and Innovation (CEMRI) in the Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) program.

The Image Processing and Analysis Center

The emphasis of the Image Processing and Analysis Group (IPAG) from the outset has been to bridge areas of general image processing and computer vision with medical-imaging-specific knowledge. By being physically located in the medical school while maintaining close ties to engineering through teaching and research, the group strives to advance the field by developing new image processing and analysis methodology fully grounded with knowledge of image acquisition physics, anatomy and physiology, and the clinical and scientific questions.

The PET Center (Positron Emission Tomography)

The PET Center is comprised of a technologically advanced radiochemistry laboratory engaged in the development and use of a rich set of  PET radiopharmaceuticals labeled with the most common PET isotopes (11C, 15O, 13N, and 18F); and an imaging and data analysis section that oversees scanning procedures and optimizes data acquisition and analysis.

The Yale Magnetic Resonance Research Center (MRRC)

The MRRC is an interdepartmental and interdisciplinary research laboratory that provides state-of-the-art MR equipment, infrastructure, and expertise for the development and application of MRI and MRS methodology in biomedical research. Research is focused on the study of intact biological systems by developing methods for obtaining structural, functional, physiological and biochemical information by MRI, MRS and other techniques.

Yale Institute for Nanoscience and Quantum Engineering (YINQE)

The mission of the Yale Institute for Nanoscience and Quantum Engineering is to develop collaborations centered on nanoscale research projects among those in a variety of scientific disciplines, in order to make substantial advances in understanding and technology.

Yale Center for Genomics and Proteomics

The Yale University Center for Genomics and Proteomics is a focal point for the research and teaching of genomics, small molecule screening, proteomics, ribonomics and bioinformatics, including the areas of chemical genomics, comparative genomics, structural genomics, technology development and bioengineering.

DNA Analysis Facility

The DNA Analysis Facility supports the applications of DNA Sequencing and Fragment Analysis of Microsatellites and AFLP's. The facility is housed in the Yale Institute for Biospheric Studies Molecular Systematics and Conservation Genetics Center, enhancing training within the MSCG Center by allowing students to obtain genetic information from large data sets in a time frame that is appropriate to their academic schedules.

W.M. Keck Foundation Biotechnology Resource Laboratory

The Keck Biotechnology Resource Laboratory provides 150 genomic, proteomic, biostatistical, bioinformatics, and high performance computing technologies to hundreds of Yale and non-Yale investigators whose research otherwise might not benefit from the highly sophisticated and expensive instrumentation upon which biological and biomedical research is increasingly dependent.
