Welcome to the official YSEA Members Site!

Founded in 1914, YSEA is one of the oldest university alumni organizations in the world with a focus on issues in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Our mission is to connect alumni with students, the University, and each other to strengthen the Yale science and engineering community.

While approximately half of our members hold science degrees, and a similar number hold engineering degrees, some of our members are musicians, writers, or other humanities graduates. We're interdisciplinary: science, engineering, and society all influence each other, and our members care about how the pieces fit together.

We hope that you will find this website to be a useful tool. Thanks for visiting!

YSEA & SEAS at the FIRST Championships!

By Eli YSEA on April 24th, 2013

Via the School of Engineering and Applied Science's Facebook page:



"Look for Yale Engineering at the FIRST Championships this week in St. Louis -- we'll be on Scholarship Row and admitted students will be invited to a reception with the Yale Science and Engineering Association. Alumni and Yale students in the area should contact YSEA to volunteer or attend events. See you in St. Louis! (FIRST alumni currently at Yale pose with Dean Kamen & his mom last week in the Yale Center for Engineering Innovation & Design.)"

For more information about YSEA activities at the FIRST championships, please contact us at FIRST@YSEA.org.

Yale study finds some aggressive tumors silence genes that fight cancer

A study led by Yale Cancer Center may provide clues to how some aggressive cancers turn off, or silence, genes critical to suppressing tumors. The findings, published in the journal Cell Reports, suggest that this gene silencing process could be interrupted to increase the chances that aggressive tumors will respond to treatment.

Migrating wildebeests, raging hippos, and robotic boats on Kenya's Mara River

In these videos, Amanda Subalusky and Chris Dutton of the Yale Mara Project describe their research on the impact of wildebeests and hippos on rivers within Kenya's Maasai Mara National Reserve. The scientists also describe their use of small robotic boats to collect environmental data from Mara River locations full of Nile crocodiles and hippos, areas that would be too dangerous to sample otherwise.

Research in the news: Researchers uncover new cancer cell vulnerability

Yale School of Medicine and Yale Cancer Center researchers have uncovered a genetic vulnerability of cancer cells that express telomerase — an enzyme that drives their unchecked growth — and showed that telomerase-expressing cells depend upon a gene named p21 for their survival.
