transcription process.

Dr. Kornberg, the inaugural Mrs. George A. Winzer Professor in Medicine at Stanford University, completed his undergraduate education in chemistry at Harvard University and earned his doctorate at Stanford. In 1978, after a postdoctoral fellowship in Cambridge, England, and a brief tenure in the department of biological chemistry at Harvard Medical School, Dr. Kornberg returned to Stanford, where he chaired the department of structural biology from 1984 until 1992. He has held his current post since 2003.

Science2006 showcases the University of Pittsburgh's academic strengths in science, medicine, engineering and computation, and the growing potential they hold as catalysts for economic development in the region. This year's theme, "Feel the Power," emphasizes the capacity of scientific research for driving the development of innovations in medicine and technology.

The other plenary speakers for Science2006 are Carla J. Shatz, Ph.D., Nathan Marsh Pusey Professor and chair of the department of neurobiology at Harvard Medical School; Baldomero M. Olivera, Ph.D., distinguished professor of biology at the University of Utah and an adjunct professor at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies; and Nathan S. Lewis, Ph.D., George L. Argyros Professor, professor of chemistry and principal investigator of the Beckman Institute Molecular Materials Resource Center at the California Institute of Technology.
