Soft hydrogel electrodes for better, safer implants
Soft, conductive hydrogels match the physical properties of the human brain, enabling the creation of electrodes and implantable devices that can improve brain-machine interfaces while reducing the risk of injury.
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.
Manufacturing Mini Surgical Robots
Project 1985 is commercializing the Wyss Institute’s Pop-Up MEMS technology to quickly and cheaply develop tiny robotic tools for minimally invasive surgery.
MyoExo: Smart Wearable Sensors for Parkinson’s Disease
MyoExo is a wearable, fabric-based device with integrated smart sensors that aims to accurately monitor the primary signs of Parkinson’s Disease over time, improving diagnosis and treatment.
Molecular Nucleic Acid Detection Technology to Empower Patients with Self-Testing Capabilities
This technology provides an innovative molecular diagnostic assay for high-speed, sensitive, and specific detection of nucleic acids from SARS-CoV-2 or other pathogens, performed in a newly devised reusable base unit with pathogen-specific, one-time-use consumables – first prototyped at the Wyss Institute, then transformed into an inexpensive, reliable and manufacturable detection system by 3EO Health.
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.
Video/AnimationHow can we restore mobility to the sick and injured?Researchers at the Wyss Institute are working to improve treatment outcomes for patients suffering from reduced mobility. This video focuses on two platform technologies that could improve the quality of life for these patients: stochastic resonance and wearable soft robotics.

Audio/PodcastImmunoengineering with Dave Mooney – BIOS PodcastWyss Core Faculty member Dave Mooney is a leader in the fields of biomaterials, mechanotransduction, drug delivery, tissue engineering and immunoengineering. He is interested in understanding how cells sense signals in their environment and how this alters cell behavior. His laboratory develops biomaterials that exploit these signals to regulate specific cells and their function. They...
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/AnimationSoft Robots Aiding the Elderly and People with Physical ImpairmentsAn interdisciplinary team at Harvard University School of Engineering and the Wyss Institute at Harvard University is building soft robots for older adults and people with physical impairments. Examples of these robots are the Assistive Hip Suit and Soft Robotic Glove, both of which have been included in the 2021-2022 Smithsonian Institution exhibit entitled “FUTURES.”...
Audio/PodcastOf Mice and Massage with Dr. Bo Ri SeoYou know those people who say you can’t change tissue? Well Wyss Postdoctoral Fellow Bo Ri Seo explains otherwise on this episode of BodyTalk. She is the lead writer on an exciting paper. Dr. Bo Ri Seo is a biomedical engineer who has been studying mechanobiology and mechanotherapy to develop therapeutic strategies for cancer and...
