On Wednesday, April 6, Dr. Pam Silver will deliver a lecture entitled “Designing Biology” at Le Laboratoire Cambridge. This lecture is presented as a part of the Wyss Institute’s Directors Lecture Series, which showcases the institute’s Core Faculty through four lectures.. This series seeks to offer deep insight into many of the research programs and initiatives, focusing specifically on how the arts and design are informing the frontiers of science. Dr. Silver is building cell-based machines, designing novel therapeutics, and re-engineering photosynthetic bacteria to produce hydrogen and other fuels. Among her most recent innovations is an artificial extracellular matrix that could become a highly effective and safe tool for regenerating bone, muscle, and other tissues.
