Most people know that it was Jonas Salk who developed a vaccine for polio - but did you know it happened at the University of Pittsburgh?! They have a rich history of being a leader in virus research.

The Center for Vaccine Research at Pitt

Pitt's legacy in medical research contributed to the establishment of the Center for Vaccine Research in 2006 with a goal aimed at eradicating infectious diseases, the leading cause of global deaths every year.  Collaborations with Pitt’s Center for Global Health, Center for Biologic Imaging, Drug Discovery Institute, the Cancer Institute, and a host of cutting-edge Pitt laboratories strengthen the efforts and provide a unique foundation for optimal success.  The combination of research, collegiate interaction, visionary leadership, and synergistic environment in this world-class research center is unparalleled. 

Today...  this same institution is currently leading the world's fight against the COVID-19 virus through their work on a vaccine, antibodies, and immunity tests.

"Highly satisfied with my child's ortho procedure. The entire process has been seamless even with the pandemic. The website and patient portal is user friendly, but should you need to call the office for any reason, a staff member always answers in a friendly manner.  The Ambridge office is stunning, it's like waking into a super hero museum.  Everybody's favorite super hero can be found.  Dr. Spokane has a great chair side manner, upbeat and friendly.  My child was nervous at first but his fear quickly went away with the super comfortable atmosphere.  I recommend Dr. Spokane to all my friends and family."
