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, US
Pages:333 - 336
Keywords:extracellular matrix, cancer, nanomedicine, biomaterials
Abstract: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.
