Nanometrices for Cell Culture
3D cell culture, recapitulating the length scale of naturally occurring nanotopographic structures, are now being used to elucidate how physical cues can direct cell behaviour and orchestrate complex cellular processes such as stem cell differentiation and tissue organization. Advances in nanotechnology have unlocked our ability to create stimuli-responsive interfaces for spatially and temporally controlling extracellular physical and biochemical cues. Synthetic, natural and cellularised nanofiber scaffolds are used for intracellular sensing and delivery at the sub-cellular level. The field of nanoengineered cell–material interface is rapidly evolving, carrying with it the potential for major breakthroughs in fundamental cellular studies and regenerative medicine.
