FeCILL: Targeted Treatment for Severe Fungal Infections
FeCILL is novel delivery vehicle for antifungal drugs that targets them right to the infection site and reduces harmful side effects in patients with severe fungal infections.
Ichor: Reversing Aging
Ichor is addressing multiple age-related diseases by identifying genetic interventions that reprogram old cells to a younger state. Therapies based on these interventions could improve survival for cancer patients and long-term cardiovascular and neurological health.
Sugar-to-Fiber Enzyme for Healthier Food
In collaboration with Kraft Heinz, our sugar-to-fiber product can convert sugar in food products into prebiotic fiber in the human gut, reducing the amount of sugar absorbed into the bloodstream without altering the amount of sugar in existing food product recipes.
eRapid: Multiplexed Electrochemical Detection of Complex Diseases
StataDX licensed the eRapid portable electrochemical sensing technology to develop diagnostics for neurological, cardiovascular, and renal diseases with a first focus on building a point-of-care platform for difficult-to-detect neurological disorders.
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.
Molecular Nucleic Acid Detection Technology to Empower Patients with Self-Testing Capabilities
This technology provides an innovative molecular diagnostic assay for high-speed, sensitive, and specific detection of nucleic acids from SARS-CoV-2 or other pathogens, performed in a newly devised reusable base unit with pathogen-specific, one-time-use consumables – first prototyped at the Wyss Institute, then transformed into an inexpensive, reliable and manufacturable detection system by 3EO Health.
Kraft Heinz Partnership
The Kraft Heinz company approached the Wyss Institute for help to achieve its ambitious goal to make its food products healthier, resulting in a novel technology that is ripe for commercialization.

Video/AnimationWyss Diagnostics Accelerator – The Industrial Participant ProgramThe Industrial Participant Program (IPP) is a collaboration hub between healthcare testing companies and the scientific and clinical community within the Wyss ecosystem, driven by the Wyss Diagnostics Accelerator (DxA). Members of the IPP share the common goal of fast-tracking diagnostic technologies to meet unmet, critical needs. Credit: Wyss Institute at Harvard University
Video/AnimationFeCILL: Reimagining How We Treat the Sickest PatientsOpportunistic fungal infections usually only affect patients whose immune systems are compromised, but when they do, they are often deadly – the mortality rate for these infections can be as high as 25%. Existing antifungal treatments have high levels of toxicity, and can harm the patient more than they help. Researchers at the Wyss Institute...
Video/AnimationReimagining Protein Engineering Inspired by His Father: Mike SuperMike Super is a Lead Staff Scientist using protein engineering to design therapeutic and diagnostic devices to treat cancer, and infectious and immunological diseases. He also leads the Biostasis team at the Wyss. In this video, he shares his personal and professional journey that began in the deserts of Namibia shadowing his father, one of...
