Yale East meets Yale West! Trisha Craig visited Yale's West Campus this morning for a whistle-stop tour of just a few of the activities on campus. The Dean of International & Professional Experience at Yale-National University of Singapore met with Ian McClure, Acting Director of the Institute for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage, and toured Yale Landscape Lab with Chris Incarvito, Director of Research Operations & Technology at West Campus.
Craig heads the Centre for International & Professional Experience (CIPE), the Yale-NUS's office responsible for co-curricular programmes, study abroad, career services, graduate and professional school advising and leadership training.
Established in 2011 as a collaboration between Yale University and the National University of Singapore, Yale-NUS College is Singapore’s first liberal arts college #yalenus #yalewestcampus #yalecipe #culturalpreservation #eastwest
Scene on Campus: Edward Cooke (Department of the History of Art) and Anikó Bezur (Institute for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage) provide Yale students with a glimpse of the @yaleartgallery
collections at the Gallery’s vast Margaret and Angus Wurtele Study Center.
The students were visiting West Campus for one of Cooke’s Material Literacy seminars, which are held at the new Low Tech Markers Space on campus. The space is enabling students to work with wood, metal, clay, and other materials within the context of classes or workshops. Cooke's seminars invite scientists and master craftspeople to conduct demonstrations and get the students involved in working with materials, while they also benefit from the close adjacency of the IPCH and the depth and richness of Yale’s collections.
The Material Literacy seminars will also utilize the Low Tech Makers Space for wool spinning, and later in the year will take in the West Campus Urban Farm for wooden spoon carving.
Edward Cooke is the Charles F. Montgomery Professor of American Decorative Arts, Department of the History of Art. Aniko Bezur is the Wallace S. Wilson Director of the Technical Studies Lab at the Institute for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage.

Behind the scenes in our “studio” capturing the research of Dr. Jason Crawford!
One of the labs at the Yale Chemical Biology Institute, Crawford’s research focuses on developing and applying genome sequence-guided methods for the discovery of genetically encoded small molecules from mutualistic and pathogenic microorganisms. High-throughput genome sequencing of bacteria (and fungi) has revealed many highly unusual “orphan” biosynthetic gene clusters suspected of synthesizing novel, structurally diverse, and biologically active small molecules.
These types of naturally produced molecules often regulate complex interactions with their animal hosts, hold a rich history of being utilized as human drugs, and serve as excellent molecular probes for identifying new drug targets for a wide variety of diseases.

The Catalog Raisonne' for the Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings is complete! This is wall drawing 123b, first time ever executed, one person starts a line in the middle and a different person has to copy this line next to it, the colors alternate, yellow, blue, red, the lines create ripples, it's beautiful.
John introduced us to the concept of the democratic hand in LeWitt's practice. To create a harmony different craftsmen execute portions of the wall drawing and always alternate places, so that everyone's touch merge together as a whole.
Over 150 persons at Yale West Campus drew lines. Thank you to John Hogan for training us as Sol LeWitt craftsmen and for a wonderful two year working by his side. It will be online soon via the Library subscription at Yale.

We loved hosting students from the National Student Leadership Council (NSLC) over the last couple of weeks. These high school students from all over the country are selected because they’re interested in exploring a future in nursing. They participate in classes and simulations to get a glimpse into the challenges and joys of the nursing profession. #nslc #yale #yalewestcampus #yalefaculty #nurse #nurselife #nursepractitioner

Friday fun day, or, "We're going to need a bigger cake!"
The West Campus community gathered recently to celebrate the successes of our faculty. Günter Wagner, the Alison Richard Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (pictured with VP Scott Strobel), was recently elected a member of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) in recognition of his lifetime of fundamental contributions to the integration of developmental and evolutionary biology. He joins a host of colleagues at West Campus who have been elected to the US National Academy of Science. Earlier this spring, Robert (Bob) Crabtree (second image), the C.P. Whitehead Professor of Chemistry, and faculty member of the Energy Sciences Institute, was elected to the Royal Society, the United Kingdom’s national science academy. Crabtree was elected to the NAS in 2017.
Christine Jacobs-Wagner, the William H. Fleming, M.D. Professor of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology and of Microbial Pathogenesis, and Director of the Microbial Sciences Institute, was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 2015. Mark Lemmon, the David A. Sackler Professor of Pharmacology, and co-director of the Yale Cancer Biology Institute, was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 2016. In 2017, Andre Levchenko, the John C. Malone Professor of Biomedical Engineering, and Director of the Yale Systems Biology Institute, was elected a Fellow of the Biomedical Engineering Society.

We will be creating an installation at the City Wide Open Studios in New Haven to accompany our Transantiago exhibition at the Da Silva Gallery 26-28 October 2018. Visit us at Yale West Campus
Elliott Race ’18 is a recent Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) graduate specializing in adult/geriatric primary care. “I chose adult/gerontology primary care because I am passionate about providing care to the adult and aged population, especially in low income areas on the primary care level. I’m very passionate about quality primary care and ensuring that patients get the help they need. I hope to practice in Cleveland, helping the underserved in the downtown area, as well as getting involved in health policy and influencing how healthcare is structured and run throughout the area.” #yale #yalealumni #yalemed #clevelandclinic #nurse #gerontology #gerontologynurse #nursing #yalewestcampus
Polly Huynh is an MSN student specializing in psychiatric-mental health nursing. The daughter of Chinese-Vietnamese refugees, Polly grew up in southern Massachusetts with a love for learning and family. Her goal is to bring psychiatric care to primary care clinics and have it become the norm to see a psychiatric specialist. She believes that seeking psychiatric care is still highly stigmatized, and she wants to close the gap between the idea of having a visit with your PCP and psychiatric treater. “I have seen the life changing effects of having a psychiatric treater and this can help a lot of individuals in the community. I am really looking forward to the specialty years of the program since we don’t get to see a lot of psych in the first year. I think I’ll really enjoy the experience!” #yale #yalepsych #yalemed #yalealumni #yalegsas #yalefaculty #psychiatry #annualfund #give #nurse #psychiatrynurse #yalewestcampus

Read the fascinating story of Maria Haslip ‘20. Maria was born and raised in St. Petersburg, Russia, where she received her masters of science in biophysics from Petersburg Polytechnic University and worked in the field of medical genetics. She studied molecular cardiology, and in 2000, received her PhD in biochemistry.
Maria’s university course took six years, the last two years of which she spent working on the molecular biology of cardiovascular diseases. She worked in the first human molecular biology lab in the former Soviet Union. However, she always wanted to pursue opportunities in the United States, eventually fulfilling her dream by taking up a position with the National Institute of Health in 2001. She became a United States citizen in 2012. As well as working at the NIH, she worked at Yale University for ten years, and for a small biotech company developing an immune vaccine against Hepatitis B. She says she has not regretted at all switching her career to nursing, where she can continue her scientific research in a new setting. #yale #yalewestcampus #yalegsas #yalemed #yalemedicine #yalehealth #ynhh #nurse #nurselife #nursingscience #yalealumni
Meet James Darden IV ‘19! “I am currently in my first semester of my specialty year at YSN, and I have been enjoying the change of pace from GEPN. The variety of opportunities at Yale are beyond what I could have expected, and I have now found myself extending beyond my previous limits in many different domains. I have been working as a research assistant, teaching assistant, and I have taken on two roles in the student government. My evolution as a student and leader has expanded beyond what I previously thought was possible, and I am grateful for the opportunity and fortune to be attending this program.
My dream as a nurse practitioner is to function as a clinician, leader, and researcher in the realm of orthopedic surgery and sports medicine. Yale is the pinnacle of knowledge pursuit, as is reflected in our motto “Lux et Veritas”, “Light and Truth”. My thirst for knowledge will never be quenched, but I feel in good company every day when I walk through the doors of YSN.”

Sneak Preview: WWI Hero “Sargent Stubby” Arrives at Yale’s West Campus!
Thought to be the only known painting of the most decorated dog of WWI, Sgt Stubby arrived at the Institute for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage today to undergo conservation treatment by Irma Passeri, Senior Conservator of Paintings, and Emily Landry, Art Conservation Pre-Program Intern, both @yaleartgallery.
The painting was accompanied by Frank Chasney and Arlene DeGrand Painter of the West Haven Veterans Museum & Learning Center, home to Stubby's portrait and an endless wealth of military artifacts honoring the history of the State of Connecticut. This past winter Degrand Painter reached out to Mark Aronson, Chief Conservator @yalebritishart
, to lend a helping hand with Stubby’s flaking paint.
Check back soon for more news on this local partnership to restore Stubby to his former glory!
Sgt Stubby was adopted by the 102nd Infantry Regiment as the unit trained @yale
in July 1917. The dog’s instincts made him an invaluable companion, ultimately seeing action in 17 different battles, where he helped to detect incoming chemical attacks and locate wounded allies on the battlefield.
