The magazine of the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth
Vol. 37, No. 1 • Fall 2012
From stem cells to yeast to neurons, basic scientists at the Geisel School of Medicine follow their curiosity wherever it leads.
Looking Back and Moving Forward
Geisel Board of Overseers member Dr. Bonnie Henderson (D'89, Med'93) asks Dean Wiley "Chip" Souba about his first two years at Dartmouth and his vision for the Medical School.
Celebrating Generosity and Possibility
In May, students, faculty, staff, and alumni honored Audrey and Theodor Geisel for their support of the Medical School.
In the 1980s, an unusual agreement between the State of New Hampshire and the Medical School's Department of Psychiatry helped revolutionize the trea tment of ment al illness.
Clinical advances begin with basic research. See the article "Back to Basics" for more on a few of the contributions made by Geisel scientists.
