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.
