Fiber-assisted molding (FAM) of surfaces with tunable curvature to guide cell alignment and complex tissue architecture.

Abstract

A simple and robust method termed "fiber-assisted molding (FAM)" is presented to create biomimetic three-dimensional surfaces with controllable curvature and helical twist. The alignment of muscle fibrils and the assembly of helically patterned extracellular matrix by cells demonstrate the potential of this method for tissue engineering and other materials… (More)
