The Pittsburgh Conference or “PITTCON” was founded in 1950 to bring together researchers from basic and applied scientists to solve important scientific problems. Using science education as the underlying charter, PITTCON has grown into the world’s largest scientific conference in the United States. This year’s conference in Orlando will feature more than 1,100 vendors and 25,000 attendees. The Microarray Symposium will be the first event of its kind at PITTCON 2003.
“When the meeting organizers contacted me, I was fully booked”, said Dr. Schena. “But the size, scope and renown of the show were too exciting to pass up. It is a great privilege to be asked to Chair the inaugural Microarray Symposium at this year’s meeting.”
