Nanoarchitectures for Air Purification
Nanoarchitectures for Air Purification

Illnesses caused by air pollution are the third-leading cause of death in developing nations, and over 5 million people worldwide die every year from air pollution exposure. Catalytic converters, the most widely used air purification devices, convert the toxic gases and pollutants produced by fuel combustion into benign chemicals before the exhaust is released into...

FcMBL: Broad-Spectrum Pathogen Capture for Infectious Diseases
FcMBL: Broad-Spectrum Pathogen Capture for Infectious Diseases

Microbial infection is the cause of life-threatening cases of sepsis, meningitis and multiple other diseases that are major causes of death world-wide. Equally prevalent are pathogenic contaminants in our environment, food, and manufacturing processes. In each case, the presence of dangerous microbes must be confirmed, and when they are found, they need to be removed,...

Young male athlete running on race track.
Athlete-Derived Probiotics

Elite athletes possess extraordinary physical abilities enabling them to reach peak performances and recover quickly. The question is, can we extract information from their biology and use it to boost the performance level and speed up recovery of every-day-athletes? Research in different laboratories over the past years has discovered potential connections between the composition of...

INSPECTR™: Direct-to-Consumer Molecular Diagnostic
INSPECTR™: Direct-to-Consumer Molecular Diagnostic

Molecular diagnostics is the fastest growing segment of the global in vitro diagnostics market. There remains a gap, however, in providing this technology directly to consumers in a format that is as cost effective and as simple to use as a lateral flow immunoassay, like glucose and pregnancy tests. Scientists at the Wyss Institute have...

Synthetic AAV Capsids for Advanced Gene Therapy
Synthetic AAV Capsids for Advanced Gene Therapy

The protein shell (capsid) of Adeno-associated viruses (AAV) are presently the most promising delivery vehicles for various in vivo gene therapies. AAVs are non-pathogenic and, through past engineering efforts, have become safe due to their inability to integrate into and damage the genome of target cells. Rather, the delivered DNA containing a therapeutic gene of...

Root: Educational Robot for Coding
Root: Educational Robot for Coding

Computing is currently the fastest growing segment in the STEM fields, yet education in this area has lagged behind technological progress and demand. One of the main challenges in teaching K-16 coding is the difficulty in finding frameworks that span a wide age range and appeal to broad audiences. Databases aren’t something that excite most...
