The engineering of surface patterns is a powerful tool for analyzing cellular communication factors involved in the processes of adhesion, migration, and expansion, which can have a notable impact on therapeutic applications including tissue engineering. In this regard, the main objective of this research was to fabricate patterned and textured surfaces at(More)
The localized irradiation of Si allows a precise patterning at the microscale of nanostructured materials such as porous silicon (PS). PS patterns with precisely defined geometries can be fabricated using ion stopping masks. The nanoscale textured micropatterns were used to explore their influence as microenvironments for human mesenchymal stem cells(More)
This work describes a novel process for the fabrication of hybrid nanostructured particles showing intense tunable photoluminescence and a simultaneous ferromagnetic behavior. The fabrication process involves the synthesis of nanostructured porous silicon (NPSi) by chemical anodization of crystalline silicon and subsequent in pore growth of Co nanoparticles(More)
Agarose hydrogels containing aminopropyl triethoxy silane (APTS) have been prepared and evaluated as scaffolds for adhesion and proliferation of human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs). The preparation of the hydrogels involved the conventional melting of agarose in water followed by addition of APTS as functional group carrier. The resulting hydrogel supports(More)
