From Micro- to Nano- Patterning: Manipulating the Extracellular Matrix and Directing Cell Organization, Migration & Adhesion

Authors: A. Moten

Affilation: Harvard Univeristy/Massachusetts Institute of Technology, United States

Pages: 333 - 336

Keywords: extracellular matrix, cancer, nanomedicine, biomaterials

Cells are inherently sensitive to local mesoscale and microscale patterns of chemistry and topography. Recent research has investigated how surface mechanics might dictate cell behavior, affecting both cell function and differentiation. This study professes that alterations of the underlying matrix can dictate cell behavior and function.
