The Problem The COVID-19 pandemic has made it starkly clear that the world lacks rapid, accurate diagnostic tests for pathogens. When patients arrive in a medical facility for treatment, the triage process is hindered by diagnostic tests that are inaccurate or take a long time to produce results. In addition, patients who are asymptomatic and...
OrbitSeq is a digital platform that empowers life sciences researchers to browse, upload, and analyze datasets, and easily collaborate with each other to bring science closer together and speed up the pace of discovery.
The next-generation gene therapy for molecular skin rejuvenation combines a comprehensive target gene prediction with a novel transdermal delivery approach for therapeutic adenovirus-associated viruses. The platform targets monogenic disease indications in the skin, and extends the same targets to the treatment of common skin aging conditions.
A fermentation-based platform that uses greenhouses gases to produce food-grade fats without the use of plants or animals. The Wyss Institute is de-risking this technology and is seeking strategic partnerships with companies and individuals who are interested in assisting with its development and commercialization.
PhonoGraft is an easy-to-use, biomimetic device that stimulates a patient's eardrum to heal itself after perforation. This regenerative medicine approach can enable better and longer-lasting eardrum reconstruction, reducing the need for invasive surgeries and minimizing the risk of long-term hearing loss.
The COVID-19 pandemic has killed more than two million people worldwide and death tolls continue to mount due to the lack of an effective prevention, cure, or widespread vaccine for the disease. Influenza viruses have been even more deadly in the past, and still cause hundreds of thousands of deaths every year. Seasonal flu vaccines...
