yeast and higher eukaryotes.

Dr. Davis's current work focuses on the development of novel technologies for the genetic, genomic and molecular analysis of a wide range of model organisms as well as humans. His team's focus on practical application of these technologies is setting the standard for clinical genomics.

Dr. Davis is director of the Stanford Genome Technology Center. He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Microbiology and has served on many prestigious committees, including the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Genome Research Review Committee, the NIH Center for Biomedical Ethics Steering Committee, the World Health Organization's (WHO) Immunology of Tuberculosis Steering Committee, and the WHO Strategic Research Steering Committee, which he chaired.

Science2005 emphasizes 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, "The New Research Ecology," stresses the collaborative spirit between colleagues and research institutions that can lead to critical scientific advances.

The other keynote speakers for Science2005 are the University of California, San Francisco's Cynthia Kenyon, Ph.D., acclaimed for her research in the influence of hormones on aging; Joan Massagu, Ph.D., Alfred P. Sloan Chair at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center; and J. Fraser Stoddart, Ph.D., D.Sc., director of UCLA's California NanoSystems Institute and one of the most cited chemists in academia.

Also on the program will be spotlight sessions presented by scientists from Pitt and Carnegie Mellon University; a technology showcase highlighting recent inventions now available for licensing; a career development workshop for emerging scientists; and various networking and social events.
