Abstract

An important present and emerging trend in biomaterials development is the synthesis of polymers which combine capabilities of biologic recognition ("biomimetic") with sensitivity to small environmental changes ("stimuli-responsive"). This short article highlights some of the many opportunities and challenges in this exciting area.
