Harvard University Key Developments

The Broad Institute, Harvard University, The Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Editas Medicine Enter into Worldwide License Agreement

The Broad Institute, Harvard University, The Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Editas Medicine have entered into a worldwide license agreement to grant Editas access to intellectual property related to certain genome editing technology for the development of human therapeutic applications. The agreement relates to technology that engineers the CRISPR-Cas9 system-a naturally-occurring part of the bacterial immune system. Researchers at Harvard Medical School, the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University, Broad Institute, MIT, the McGovern Institute for Brain Research at MIT, and Harvard University Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS), have optimized the CRISPR-Cas9 system to allow for insertion, replacement, and regulation of targeted genes in higher organisms, with the potential to one day be used in humans. This technology has wide-ranging therapeutic potential and could lay the groundwork for treating diseases where a gene's expression needs to be altered (such as turning down CCR5 in HIV), or where a mutation needs to be repaired (such as sickle cell diseases or hemophilia). In addition to their therapeutic implications, CRISPR-Cas9 systems enable scientists to modify genes and better understand the biology of living cells and organisms.
