Hydrogel scaffolds are used in biomedicine to study cell differentiation and tissue evolution, where it is critical to control the delivery of chemical cues both spatially and temporally. While large molecules can be physically entrapped in a hydrogel, moderate molecular weight therapeutics must be tethered to the hydrogel network through a labile linkage… CONTINUE READING
