The capability to spatially control stem cell orientation and differentiation simultaneously using a combination of geometric cues that mimic structural aspects of native extracellular matrix (ECM) and biochemical cues such as ECM-bound growth factors (GFs) is important for understanding the organization and function of musculoskeletal tissues. Herein,(More)
Neural Stem Cells (NSCs) are multipotent precursors inhabiting the subventricular and hippocampal subgranular regions of the adult mammalian brain, able to self-renew and differentiate into neurons, astrocytes, and oligodendrocytes, the three primary neural cell types of the adult brain. NSC fate is influenced by the physical and chemical microenvironment(More)
Positioning of the cell division plane is critically important for tissue morphogenesis and architecture. 1 it is therefore not surprising that mitotic spindle orientation must be tightly regulated in living tissues, a phenomenon that is also observed in cells cultured in vitro. Because of the amenability of cultured cells to molecular and physical(More)
