Robert Gordon


Robert Gordon ‘52 JE. After completing my dissertation in what is now known as condensed matter physics and some work for the Air Force R&D Command I began teaching at Columbia University.  Then in 1965 I joined Geology & Geophysics at Yale. It was an exciting time.  Plate tectonics was the new thing and we were figuring out how solid rock could flow so that continents could drift.  The Yale geology department was strong on interdisciplinary collaboration.  I worked with colleagues in Economics and, later, the industrial ecologists in Forestry & Environmental Studies on the science and economics of mineral resources. Next came new laboratory techniques for extracting information from archaeological artifacts.  With colleagues in Archaeology studies I applied these to interpretation of materials retrieved by the Yale expeditions to Nubia, and to Machu Picchu.  I’m now in York, Maine, and in the past year published a book chapter on transformative innovation in mining and metallurgy, and a paper on the tide power system that once occupied what is now Boston’s Back Bay.

Dr. Gruber is a Professor of Surgery at the Yale School of Medicine and a Pediatric Cardiothoracic Surgeon at Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital. Over the past two decades, his clinical practice has focused on surgical repair of complex congenital heart disease; and research on understanding it’s molecular and genetic underpinnings and developing innovative therapies to improve cardiac function. He has contributed to discoveries that have shown the importance of epigenetic factors, especially histone deacetylases, in cardiac development and its response to ischemia-reperfusion injury. He earned his B.A. in Biochemistry from the University of Pennsylvania (1985), M.D. from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine (1992), and Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania, in Biochemistry and Biophysics (1992). He completed his dissertation in Laboratory of Biochemical Genetics and Metabolism at Rockefeller University. His post-doctoral fellowship in Cardiac Development was completed at the American Heart Association-Bugher Foundation Center for Molecular Biology at the University of California, San Diego (1994-1996). His clinical training in General and Cardiothoracic Surgery was completed at the Johns Hopkins Hospital (1992-1999) and Pediatric Cardiothoracic Surgery at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (2002).

David Hafler


David Hafler, William S. and Lois Stiles Edgerly Professor of Neurology and Professor Immunobiology, loves to kayak in the Long Island Sound, go for runs, and to pontificate on how we should train the next cadre of physician scientists. He decided early in his career (college) to make the understanding of multiple sclerosis as a life passion, and during this adventure became a clinical neurologist, immunologist, and geneticist. After spending 28 years at Harvard, he with great joy a number of years ago moved to Yale with his wife Janet (see her blurb), a Medical Educator. While he is the Breakstone Professor Emeritus at Harvard, he always sits on the Yale side at “The Game”. They have two wonderful children, Brian, an MD/PhD graduate and research ophthalmologist and Jason, a PhD in Genetics graduate involved in venture capital. You can reach him at david.hafler@yale.edu.

Janet Hafler


Janet Hafler, Associate Dean for Educational Scholarship and Professor of Pediatrics at the Yale Medical School is very interested in talking with students about the transition to Yale University, about careers in health care and in education. Over her career she has taught, advised students, residents and faculty in the health care professions, and participated in medical school admissions. As the Director of the Teaching and Learning Center at the YSM, which was opened in 2012 Janet loves the contact with students and faculty who are passionate about education. Being a new grandmother, and raising two sons with David Hafler who is the Chair of Neurology at Yale School of Medicine she has tried to balance her balance work and family. She loves to take walks, do yoga and cook. janet.hafler@yale.edu
