The Pittsburgh Liver Research Center strives to provide its members with meaningful and relevant enrichment programs.
The Seminar series features established liver researchers and clinicians from the University of Pittsburgh and UPMC as well as from other universities and hospitals. Seminars are held one Monday each month.
The Special Interest Group (SIG) Roundtables are designed to exhibit the connection between work within clinics and labs. Clinicians and basic scientists are paired by topic for these sessions, with both presenters having the opportunity to explicate the topic from the perspective of their own work. The goal is to foster translational science, dialogue, and collaboration among the members of the Center. Each SIG meets once every 6 weeks.
Please join us for the annual Pittsburgh Liver Research Center Retreat for a day of scientific presentations, networking with colleagues, and food and drinks. The keynote presentation will be held from 4:00-5:00 pm by Dr. Gyongyi Szabo. Dr. Szabo is the Mitchell T. Rabkin, M.D. Chair, Professor of Medicine, and Faculty Dean for Academic Affairs at the Harvard Medical School and Chief Academic Officer at Beth Israel Lahey Health and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
PLRC members have received information on the full agenda for the event, and information on how to RSVP. Please email Amanda Bytzura at email@example.com should you have any questions.
