“Today the potential of Yale’s West Campus is being realized. Our landscape has become an integral, vibrant part of Yale and a hub for innovative research spanning Health, Culture, Energy and the Environment. Our aim is for true convergence in research – the connecting point for Yale’s scientific focus on the challenges of human sustainability.

       Please explore this site and learn more about the seven research Institutes, the Yale School of Nursing, and the many collaborative Centers and Cores at West Campus.”  – Scott Strobel, Provost


Through integrated practice, education, and research, the world class Yale School of Nursing pursues its mission, “Better health for all people.” These words also hold true for five neighboring basic science Institutes at West Campus, connecting faculty across disciplines to bring new perspectives to today’s most pressing health problems. State-of-the-art collaborative laboratories foster connectivity within and across our Cancer Biology, Chemical Biology, Microbial Sciences, Nanobiology and Systems Biology Institutes, enabling Yale scientists to accelerate the course of research and realize new discoveries, inventions and cures.


At the crossroads of science and culture, the Institute for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage is dedicated to advancing the field of heritage science in a sustainable manner. The Institute’s seven cutting-edge laboratories – Aging Diagnostics, Built Heritage, Conservation, Digitization, Lens Media, Sustainable Conservation and Technical Studies – form a unique connecting point for basic and applied research, education, technology, and practice alongside Yale’s collections and across a multidisciplinary community as diverse as culture itself.


A driving force in the physical sciences, faculty at the Energy Sciences Institute conduct interdisciplinary research on renewable energy and carbon management. Scholars from across the departments of Chemistry, Geology & Geophysics, Mechanical Engineering & Materials Science, Applied Physics, Physics, Chemical & Environmental Engineering and Electrical Engineering share open-concept lab space to develop future materials for solar energy conversion and storage.


At 136 acres, the scale of West Campus provides endless opportunities for research and learning within touching distance of New Haven. Our expansive Landscape Lab provides access to an unparalleled mix of urban and natural environment, supporting synergistic projects in health science, food systems, ecology, energy systems, entrepreneurship, and land use, which now connect over 20 professional schools, departments, organizations, and student groups across Yale.
