Celebrating the Intersection Between the Mathematical & Biomedical Sciences
Important Notice: Pi Day Postponement
Due to the likelihood of a significant snowstorm on March 14, we are canceling all of tomorrow's Pi Day events. However, we will reschedule for a later date, so keep an eye out for updates!
Pi Day is an annual celebration of the irrational number Pi, 3.14..., on March 14. On Pi Day and every day, NIH recognizes the importance of building a diverse biomedical workforce with the quantitative skills required to tackle future challenges.
NIH invites you to participate in our third annual celebration of Pi Day, on Tuesday, March 14, 2017, with a day of events and activities celebrating the intersection between the quantitative and biomedical sciences. If you are not able to join us in person, you can still view many of the day's events live on NIH Videocast. Join us on Twitter as well, using #nih_piday.
