A series of crosslinkable, biodegradable dendritic macromolecules are described for the preparation of hydrogels. The properties—mechanical, swelling, degradation, and so forth—of the hydrogels can be tuned by altering the composition, crosslinking chemistry, wt %, and generation number. These hydrogels have been used for repairing corneal wounds, for engineering cartilage tissue, and for screening molecular recognition events.
