UCSD Nanoengineers Win $1M Grant to Develop Wearables That Decontaminate Chem-Bio Agents From Skin

The Defense Threat Reduction Agency grant is intended to develop new skin-wearable systems that can rapidly and efficiently detect and remove chemical and biological agents. The project, led by Nano professors Joseph Wang and Liangfang Zhang, 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).
