The Carvunis Lab is affiliated with the Department of Computational and Systems Biology of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. The University of Pittsburgh was founded in 1787. The campus, located in the city, is highly walkable and displays a broad variety of architectures. Perhaps the most notable building is the Cathedral of Learning, which was built in honor of education and harbors a multitude of functional classrooms decorated by different countries around the world.
