Why did you choose the University of Pittsburgh?

I choose Pitt because of the opportunity to work with a number of top-tier scientists in my field of interest as well as the collaborative atmosphere fostered at this research institution.  The prospect of working at the Hillman Cancer Center was also appealing because it reflects Pitt's dedication to translational science.
