I believe that biology
is the future that is going to help make
the world a better place. I love what I do because I
engage with young people, and these are the
people that are going to implement this future. I’m Pam Silver, and I’m a
professor at Harvard Medical School. I use biology to build
things that will be useful for people in the world. We draw on the power
of what we know from how natural systems work. And we believe that biology is
the technology of this century. We believe that biology offers
the best chemistry there is. Using biology, we should be able
to make better therapeutics, we should make plants
that grow faster and help with the
world food problem, and we can make, for
example, better biofuels. [MUSIC PLAYING]
