Engineering tissue similar in structure to their natural equivalents is a major challenge and crucial to function. Despite attempts to engineer skeletal muscle, it is still difficult to effectively mimic tissue architecture. Rigid scaffolds can guide cell alignment but have the critical drawback of hindering mechanical function of the resultant tissue. We present a method for creating highly ordered tissue-only constructs by using rigid microtopographically patterned surfaces to first guide… CONTINUE READING
