Pittsburgh’s Makeover—Education, Medicine, and Technology—And What’s New for 2012
Over the past 30 years, Pittsburgh has reinvented itself. Once an industrial giant, today Pittsburgh is identified through its world-class educational entities and its discoveries in health care, translation research, and information technology. The founding director of the McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine Alan Russell, PhD, distinguished university professor of surgery, and professor in the departments of Bioengineering, Chemical Engineering, and Rehabilitation Science and Technology, University of Pittsburgh, recently spoke with Christine O’Toole of Pittsburgh magazine about Pittsburgh’s transformation. Her article entitled “Dynamic Duo” features that conversation.
