Designing Biology for Diagnostics and Therapeutics Lecture


On Tuesday, November 27, join Brigham and Women’s Hospital for the weekly Clinical Pathology Conference lecture series featuring Wyss Core Faculty member Pamela Silver. Pamela Silver is leveraging synthetic biology to build cells that act as sensors, memory devices, and drug delivery agents. Among her recent innovations are bacteria that sense and respond to gut inflammation. Her ultimate goal is to create a 100% synthetic microbiome that has the capacity to detect and cure disease. Other unrelated projects include the Bionic Leaf, which couples sunlight to bioproduction. Join the seminar to learn more!
