Mechanotransduction is crucial for cellular processes including cell survival, growth and differentiation. Topographically patterned surfaces offer an invaluable non-invasive means of investigating the cell response to such cues, and greater understanding of mechanotransduction at the cell-material interface has the potential to advance development of tailored topographical substrates and new generation implantable devices. This study focuses on the effects of topographical modulation of cell… CONTINUE READING
