Regeneration of organizationally complex tissue requires regulation of spatial distributions of particular cell types in three dimensions. In this paper we demonstrate an integration of polymer processing and selective polymer surface modification using methods suitable for construction of three-dimensional polymer scaffolds which may aid such cell organization. Specifically, the surfaces of degradable polyesters were modified with poly(ethylene-oxide) (PEO)-poly(propylene-oxide) (PPO… CONTINUE READING
