Why I chose Pitt

There are many reasons why I chose the University of Pittsburgh.  First and foremost, the university's reputation in biomedical research is outstanding.  I was also really drawn to the collaborative nature of the university and the breadth  of biomedical research that is done here.

Following her graduation from the University of Pittsburgh, Dr. Zerbato accepted a position as a postdoctoral research fellow at The Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity in Melbourne, Australia.
