Bioresponsive hydrogels for sensing applications

Author affiliations


This Highlight presents some of the recent efforts in the design of bioresponsive hydrogels, and their application to biosensing. These efforts extend philosophically from early work on glucose responsive gels, with current studies being focused both on gel responsivity and transduction of that response such that true sensor applications can be realized. The future outlook for the field is also discussed.
