DNA Nanoswitches: “Lab-on-a-Molecule” Drug Discovery
The Lab-on-a-Molecule platform leverages the Wyss Institute’s DNA nanotechnology technology for the high-throughput, low-cost screening of a wide range of chemical and biologic compounds to enable the discovery of first-in-class therapeutics for various conditions.
Sparkle: Instant Biosensors for Real-Time Imaging
Sparkle is revolutionizing the binder assay industry by harnessing novel chemistry to create instant fluorescent biosensors for a wide variety of uses.
CogniXense for Rare Disease Drug Discovery
Unravel Biosciences has licensed a Wyss drug discovery platform technology to identify and create drugs to treat complex central nervous system disorders, starting with Rett syndrome.
SomaCode: Getting Cell Therapies Where They Need to Go
SomaCode is solving the problem of cell therapy delivery by identifying unique molecular “zip codes” for disease and engineering cells to home to those zip codes, making cell therapies safer and more effective.
CircaVent: A Drug Discovery Platform for Mental Health Conditions
CircaVent is a novel drug discovery platform that combines predictive algorithms, high-throughput preclinical models, and human organoids to identify and test drugs that could treat mental health conditions like bipolar disorder.
Rapid Metabolite-Sensing System for Blood Lactate
In emergency medicine, blood lactate levels are a reliable real-time indicator of the severity and mortality risk of conditions that occur as a result of poor blood circulation and oxygen supply to organs and tissues (hypoperfusion), such as in patients with sepsis, cardiac arrest, stroke, major trauma, cystic fibrosis and other conditions. Lactate levels also...
