Stanford Researchers Develop Molecularly Imprinted Polymers for Continual, Real-time Sensing of Dopamine for Health Monitoring

In a recent paper published in ACS Nano, a team of researchers led by Professor Nicholas Melosh and Dr. Nofar Mintz Hemed in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Stanford University describe their innovative, dopamine-binding molecularly imprinted polymers (MIP) that have a limit of detection in the sub-nanomolar range and does not require as complex a fabrication process. With continued development of the sensor, it may be integrated with wireless electronics and used for long term monitoring of physiology.

The motivation behind developing this kind of sensor lies in the quest for continuous, real-time health monitoring with high precision.
