Department of Laboratory Medicine

The Department of Laboratory Medicine at Yale has a long and proud tradition of providing leading edge clinical care, outstanding biomedical research, and comprehensive education in our field. Its roots can be traced back to the work of John Peters, who, as head of the Metabolic Division of the Department of Medicine in the 1920's and 30's, established methodologies for the rigorous examination of the chemical composition of blood and urine that brought quantitative discipline to the study of human metabolism. Along with Donald Van Slyke, he published the seminal volumes Quantitative Clinical Chemistry, Methods and Interpretations in 1931-32 that helped to launch the modern clinical laboratory. It is this tradition of excellence, innovation, and evidence-based inquiry that drives the Department today in all aspects of our mission.
