Circe: Transforming Greenhouse Gases into Biodegradable Products
Our society is built upon cheap, widely available petrochemicals. Beyond gasoline and other fuels, petrochemicals are primary components of many of the objects in our everyday lives, including clothing, cosmetics, electronics, packaging, paint, floors, cars, and furniture. The vast majority of these products do not biodegrade in the environment and are not recycled, and the...
Brain Targeting Program: Shuttles for Brain Delivery of Therapeutics and Diagnostics
In its Brain Targeting Program, a Wyss team led by Founding Director Donald Ingber, M.D., Ph.D. and Staff Program Lead James Gorman, M.D., Ph.D. is developing improved approaches to target drugs and diagnostics to the brain. Leveraging the human blood-brain barrier (BBB) Chip technology developed by Ingber’s team, combined with advanced antibody R&D capabilities, the...

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.
Video/AnimationEngineered Cross-feeding in Bacterial ConsortiaThrough engineered amino acid cross-feeding, researchers at the Wyss Institute and Harvard Medical School modified multiple bacterial strains to reverse antagonistic interactions and develop symbiotic relationships, resulting in a more balanced consortium and paving the way for future bacteria-based therapeutics.
