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.
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.
Ichor: Reversing Aging
Ichor is addressing multiple age-related diseases by identifying genetic interventions that reprogram old cells to a younger state. Therapies based on these interventions could improve survival for cancer patients and long-term cardiovascular and neurological health.
Sparkle: Instant Biosensors for Real-Time Imaging
Sparkle is revolutionizing the binder assay industry by harnessing novel chemistry to create instant fluorescent biosensors for a wide variety of uses.
Video/AnimationHow can we feed the world?The current agricultural methods of feeding the world are not sustainable and already have dire consequences that will worsen as the Earth’s population continues to grow. Researchers at the Wyss Institute are working on various solutions that could help provide food for our future needs with a lower environmental impact. Credit: Wyss Institute at Harvard...
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/AnimationSeed-dependent crisscross DNA-origami slatsThis animation explains how the newly invented crisscross origami method can be used to build functionalized micron-scale DNA megastructures composed of many unique DNA origami “slats,” each with their own complexity and interactive properties.

Video/AnimationAcademic Entrepreneurship w/ Bob Langer & George Church – BIOS Roundtable #4George Church is a Core Faculty member at the Wyss Institute and a Professor at Harvard University. George leads Synthetic Biology at the Wyss Institute, where he oversees the directed evolution of molecules, polymers, and whole genomes to create new tools with applications in regenerative medicine and bio-production of chemicals. Among his recent work at...
Video/AnimationReimagining Neurodegenerative Disease Treatment for Her Grandfather: Mariana Garcia-CorralMariana Garcia-Corral is a Research Assistant studying brain organoids to help with the treatment of bipolar disorder. In this video, she shares a poignant personal story about her grandfather suffering from Lewy body dementia and how she would Reimagine a World with better neurodegenerative disease treatment.
