University of Pittsburgh Science 2017

October 18, 2017 - 9:00am to October 20, 2017 - 5:00pm

Science 2017
, the University of Pittsburgh’s annual celebration of science and technology, is coming to Alumni Hall and the Wyndham Pittsburgh University Center, Wednesday through Friday, October 18 –20. For three full days, Pittsburgh’s leading researchers and young investigators will present their latest findings and discuss current “hot topics” in science. Keynote lectures will be given by prominent guest scientists. Science 2017 will feature the latest in scientific discovery and research, as well as a number of exciting events—symposium sessions, exhibits, poster sessions, a career development workshop, an innovation showcase, and more.

Science 2017 is designed to showcase the region’s academic strengths in science, engineering, medicine, and computation and to highlight some of the incredible research going on in these areas. It also is intended to demonstrate how this research can be a catalyst for regional economic development; foster collaboration among academic and industrial scientists; and promote the idea that science can be interesting, exciting, and fun.

While all Science 2017 events are free and open to the public, among those likely to be particularly interested are faculty, students, postdoctoral fellows, and research associates from Pitt and other local colleges and universities; representatives of pharmaceutical, biotechnology, information technology, scientific equipment, and related industries; leaders in economic development and philanthropy; representatives of law firms, financial firms, and venture capitalists; and secondary school science teachers.
