Early identification of the specific proteins, which indicate delayed healing are critical to long-term success of the patient and the development of new treatments. It is the objective of this research to correlate changes in the proteome of wounds with clinical outcome and develop technology to sense these changes. Protein Imprinted Xerogels with Integrated Emission Sites PIXIES and porous polymer photonic bandgap PBG structures are being integrated to sense the wound bed in real time. Flexible bandgap structures and micro-concave shaped gratings have been developed to conform to the curved anatomy of the wound bed.
