This book explores the potential of hydrogels as a multi-utility system and their benefits (biocompatibility, degradability, and supporting scaffolds) for wide range of applications in diagnostics and therapeutics. It also discusses the future prospects and challenges in transition from hydrogels to nanogels. The book demonstrates the effectiveness of hydrogels in diagnostics of diseases in various in-vivo and in-vitro environments and highlights the designing and engineering of hydrogels for everyday drug dosage and possible functionalization to fabricate an efficient drug carrier.
