The proposed wearable epidermal sensors will also be equipped with therapeutic agents that are released upon detection of the chemical and biological threats.
The project, led by nanoengineering professors Joseph Wang (director of the UC San Diego Center for Wearable Sensors) and Liangfang Zhang (faculty affiliate of the UC San Diego Institute of Engineering in Medicine), is titled "Responsive Skin-Worn Detection-Treatment System." The new research aims to provide better understanding of how chem-bio agents interact with skin tissues and builds upon recent advances from Wang and Zhang's laboratories, including epidermal electrochemical biosensors (Wang Lab) and responsive drug delivery systems (Zhang Lab).
