AminoX: Making Biologics Safer with Synthetic Biology and Advanced Chemistry
AminoX enables protein drugs to only become active in the tumor microenvironment and not elsewhere in the body to avoid immune-related adverse effects in the body. By designing and building non-standard amino acids into strategic positions of protein drugs, AminoX provides tumor-specific, and longer-lasting target inhibition.
HarborSite: Precise and Efficient Gene Editing for Next-Generation Gene Therapies
The HarborSite next-generation gene therapy platform enables integration of therapeutic genes into genomic safe harbors using highly specific and efficient recombinases to enable more predictable, safe and durable gene therapies.
Plastivores: Plastic-Degrading Super-Microbes and Enzymes
The Plastic Degradation project identifies microbes from natural sources that have a low-level ability to degrade multiple types of plastic. In the laboratory, with the help of synthetic biology, those microbes then are evolved into much more effective plastic-eating microbes that, in the future, could be globally deployed to decompose plastic waste.
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.
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.
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/AnimationLight-Seq: Light-Directed In Situ Barcoding of BiomoleculesThis animation explains how the Light-Seq technology works to barcode and deep-sequence selected cell populations in tissue samples, and how the team applied it to the analysis of distinct and rare cells in the mouse retina.

Audio/PodcastIlluminating Biological Context with Josie Kishi – Translation by Fifty YearsTechnologies like next-generation sequencing allow us to understand which RNA transcripts and proteins are expressed in biological tissues. However, it’s often equally important to understand how cells or molecules are positioned relative to one another! Whether it be a cell changing its shape, an organelle ramping up a metabolic process, or a DNA molecule traveling...
Video/AnimationSomaCode: GPS for Cell TherapyJust like zip codes help drivers navigate to specific addresses using a GPS system, the molecular ‘zip codes’ identified via the SomaCode platform can be used to deliver cell therapies to their specific targets in the human body, increasing the therapies’ efficacy and reducing side effects.

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...
