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.
Engineered Live Biotherapeutic Product (eLBP) to Protect the Microbiome from Antibiotics
eLBP is a safe and cost-effective therapeutic for patients treated with beta-lactam antibiotics that safeguards against the loss of health-essential microbes while preventing the development and spread of antibiotic resistance.
Sustained Growth Factor Delivery for Regenerating Tissues
The Problem Millions of people worldwide suffer from traumatic injuries or health conditions that cause damage to soft tissues including nerves, muscles, and blood vessels. The body can heal some of that damage, but more serious cases like the severing of a nerve or sustained oxygen deprivation can lead to permanent loss of movement or...
PhonoGraftTM: Biomimetic Hearing-restoration Technology
PhonoGraft is an eardrum-regenerating device that enables better and longer-lasting eardrum reconstruction, reducing the need for invasive surgeries and minimizing the risk of long-term hearing loss. Wyss startup Beacon Bio was acquired by Desktop Health, a healthcare business within Desktop Metal, Inc. which is further developing this technology towards commercialization with the former Wyss startup team leading the way.
Microrobotic Laser-Steering Medical Device for Minimally Invasive Surgery
Endoscopy has proven extremely useful in many areas of medicine because it can be carried out with relatively few risks in a short time, and be used to diagnose and treat numerous diseases. In gastroenterology, endoscopies of the upper gastrointestinal tract (esophagus, stomach, first part of the small intestine; upper GI endoscopies) and lower gastrointestinal...
Bone Marrow-Like Scaffolds for Accelerating Immune Reconstitution
An implantable bone marrow cryogel to accelerate the full reconstitution of the immune system, including T cell immunity, in patients that received chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. This could provide an off-the-shelf, material-based solution for patients with severe blood disorders whose immunity is recovering only slowly after treatment.

Video/AnimationJanus Tough Adhesives for Tendon RepairThere is a large unmet need for tendon regeneration therapies after injury. Building upon the tough gel adhesive technologies developed at the Wyss Institute at Harvard University and the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, researchers from these institutions collaborated with a group at Novartis to create the Janus Tough Adhesives (JTAs). This two-sided...
Video/Animation2021 Kabiller Prize in Nanoscience and NanomedicineDavid R. Walt, a Wyss Core Faculty member, member of the faculty at Harvard Medical School in the Department of Pathology, and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Professor, is the winner of the 2021 Kabiller Prize in Nanoscience and Nanomedicine, the world’s largest monetary award for outstanding achievement in the field of nanotechnology and its...
Video/AnimationeToehold: an RNA-detecting control element for use in RNA therapeutics, diagnostics and cell therapiesThis animation shows an example of an eToehold that detects and signals the presence of a specific viral RNA in a human cell. After the virus has injected its RNA into a host cell, the RNA acts as a “trigger RNA” by binding to a complementary sequence within the eToehold specifically engineered for its detection....
Video/AnimationPhonoGraft: Programming the eardrum to repair itselfEardrum perforations are a widespread problem affecting millions worldwide. Current standard of care is invasive, involves harvesting an autologous tissue to patch the eardrum, and often requires to revision surgeries, while hearing outcomes remain unsatisfying. What if we could program the eardrum to repair itself after injury? Researchers at the Wyss Institute, Massachusetts Eye and...
Video/AnimationA Laser Steering Device for Robot-Assisted SurgeryResponding to an unmet need for a robotic surgical device that is flexible enough to access hard to reach areas of the G.I. tract while causing minimal peripheral tissue damage, Researchers at the Wyss Institute and Harvard SEAS have developed a laser steering device that has the potential to improve surgical outcomes for patients.
