The Atlantic is the indispensable print and online resource for ideas and opinions that matter, serving the country’s most influential audience. AtlanticLIVE is our unique events division, a group that brings The Atlantic to life through nearly 70 content-packed programs and events each year. From week-long festivals to intimate dinner gatherings, Atlantic events seize the moment, drawing the world’s leading thinkers and doers into dialogue on the most critical issues of the day.
One of the 10 universities in the UC system, The University of California, San Diego, is a powerful center for scholarly pursuits, particularly in scientific terrains. Since its founding in 1960, the campus has rapidly risen in status to become one of the top-ranked research universities in the nation. The esteemed faculty includes eight Nobel Laureates, eight MacArthur Genius Fellows and three National Medal of Science Laureates. Over the years, UCSD scholars have made huge impacts in many areas, including global warming research, discovery of the Keeling Curve, and invention of a widely-used computer language.
San Diego is one of the country’s top three hubs for biotechnology research, and the university is well-integrated into the region’s larger scientific community. This enables The Atlantic Meets the Pacific to draw on the pioneering work of some of the world’s most cutting-edge laboratories to enrich the program offerings (examples include The Scripps Research Institute, the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and the Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute). San Diego ranks as the #2 city in the U.S. for young innovators, according to research by urban studies expert Richard Florida.
