Crisscross Nanoseed Detection: Nanotechnology-Powered Infectious Disease Diagnostics
This nanotech-based diagnostic platform uses a unique nucleation mechanism that assembles a DNA "nanoseed" in the presence of a pathogen-derived biomarker that then is amplified within 15 minutes to create a signal for easy detection. It is highly robust, and cost-effective, and can be adapted to detect a variety of biomarkers.
Circe: Transforming Greenhouse Gases into Biodegradable Products
Circe is a platform technology that uses engineered microbes to produce valuable, biodegradable synthetic polymers from greenhouse gases, minimizing the environmental impact of manufacturing. Potential applications include biodegradable plastics and packaging, energy-efficient agriculture, clean personal care products, and more.

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/AnimationDNA Nanoswitch CalipersThe world’s tiniest ruler for biomolecules has been created by researchers at the Wyss Institute at Harvard University, Harvard Medical School, and Boston Children’s Hospital. DNA Nanoswitch Calipers can measure very small peptides to better understand their structure and function, and enable them to be quickly identified in mixed samples. These insights could lead to...
Video/AnimationCirce: Using Microbes to Make Biodegradable ProductsCurrent manufacturing methods release harmful greenhouse gases and pollution, and many of the products produced do not biodegrade, damaging our ecosystems even further. What if we could turn greenhouse gases into biodegradable products? Researchers at the Wyss Institute are using synthetic biology to make this a reality. Credit: Wyss Institute at Harvard University
Video/AnimationImproving Canine HealthspanA Wyss Institute technology that can treat multiple age-related diseases is now being developed by Rejuvenate Bio into a treatment for mitral valve disease and other deadly conditions in dogs, with the goal of helping man’s best friend live longer, healthier lives.

Video/AnimationAAV Capsid EngineeringWyss researchers have created a high-throughput platform to generate an Adeno-associated virus 2 (AAV2) library containing 200,000 variants, each carrying a distinct mutation in the virus capsid protein. Their analysis identified capsid changes that enhanced “homing” potential to specific organs in mice and virus viability, as well as a new protein hidden in the capsid-encoding...
Video/AnimationLighting up proteins with Immuno-SABERThis animation explains how Immuno-SABER uses the Primer Exchange Reaction (PER) to enable the simultaneous visualization of multiple proteins in tissues in different applications. Credit: Wyss Institute at Harvard University.
