Pancreatitis Tx: An Engineered Protein Treatment for Pancreatitis
First disease-modifying therapy that can be systemically applied to safely and effectively treat patients with different forms of pancreatitis.
Human Ovarian Organoids to Improve Women’s Health
Gameto is using the Wyss Institute’s fully human ovarian organoid technology to solve the global problem of rising infertility by making IVF safer, cheaper, and more accessible.
Metabolically Labeled CAR-T Cells Against Cancer
Through a simple and effective metabolic labeling approach, patient-derived T cells engineered to carry immune-enhancing cytokines on their surfaces could help expand adoptive T cell therapies to treatment of solid tumors and improve blood cancer therapies.
DoriVac: Boosting Antigen-specific Immune Responses with DNA Origami-Based Vaccines
Personalized cancer and infectious disease vaccine platform harnessing DNA nanotechnology to control the co-delivery and co-presentation of tumor antigen and adjuvant ligands to immune cells with nanoscale precision. This approach has potential to trigger enhanced immune responses against tumors and infectious pathogens.
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.
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.
Audio/PodcastReimagining Infertility – An Interview with Christian KrammeChristian Kramme imagines a world where all people can have a child on their own time frame. Such “reproductive autonomy” is not the case today – infertility is a growing problem worldwide, and existing treatments like IVF are incredibly taxing on women’s bodies and too expensive for most of the global population to access. Listen...
Video/AnimationMetabolic T cell Labeling: simple and effective enhancement of therapeutic T cells with immune-stimulating cytokinesThis animation shows how the surface of patient-derived T cells is metabolically labeled with azido-sugar molecules that then can be used to attach immune-enhancing cytokines with the help of click chemistry. The approach could help expand adoptive T cell therapies to treatment of solid tumors. Credit: Wyss Institute at Harvard University
Video/AnimationThe Vagina Chip: A New Preclinical Model for Research on Vaginal Epithelium Microbiome InteractionsThe Vagina Chip allows researchers to study a human model of the vaginal microbiome and develop new treatments for bacterial vaginosis and other conditions that threaten women’s health.

Audio/PodcastPreventing the Next Pandemic with Organ ChipsIn search for strategies to curb pandemics, scientists strive to understand how pathogens slip past the immune system and wreak havoc on the body. To achieve this goal, researchers study viral infection in models that mimic how different cell types interact with each other, the immune system, or the environment. Organ-on-a-chip models combine tissue engineering...
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/AnimationMucus Layer In Vitro on Human Colon ChipUsing Human Organ Chips, researchers at the Wyss Institute were able to generate the mucus layer of the colon in vitro, which has never been done before. In the colon, the mucus layer protects intestinal epithelial cells against inflammatory stimuli such as pathogens, damaged cells, or irritants. The ability to support mucus-producing cells is one...
