This Year's Commencement Speaker!
This Year's Commencement Speaker!
n/a
In recent years, Castilleja's Commencement speakers have included a human rights activist (Carol Bogart), a television newscaster (Carol Jenkins), an author (Mona Simpson), and a tech executive and alum (Emily White '96). This year, Castilleja is pleased to announce that once again it will host an alum -- this time from the world of science. Pam Silver '80 is one of the founders of the Systems Biology Lab at Harvard Medical School, and is the lab's first Director. She is building cell-based machines, designing novel therapeutics, and reengineering photosynthetic bacteria to produce hydrogen and other fuels. Among Pam's most recent innovations is an artificial extracellular matrix that could become a highly effective and safe tool for regenerating bone, muscle, and other tissues. We look forward to Pam's insights as an alum and as a scientist -- she is eager to share her wisdom with our graduating seniors!
