Pamela A. Silver

Elliot T. and Onie H. Adams Professor of Biochemistry and Systems Biology, Harvard Medical School

The Silver Lab seeks to enhance our understanding of natural biological design, and to develop tools and concepts for designing cells, tissues and organisms. We develop synthetic cells that act as sensors, memory devices, bio-computers, producers of high value commodities and energy from the sun. We build novel subsystems such as protein controllers with designed properties for therapeutic use.... Read more about Pamela A. Silver
