Contents Preface; Contents; Contributors; Use of Supported Thin Films of Peptide Amphiphiles as Model Systems of the Extracellular Matrix to Study the Effects of Structure- Function Phenomena on Cell Adhesion; Engineering of Integrin-Specific Biomimetic Surfaces to Control Cell Adhesion and Function; Mimetic Peptide-Modified Materials for Control of Cell Differentiation; Effects of Substratum Topography on Cell Behavior; Cytomimetic Biomaterials Fabrication, Characterization, and Applications
Summary Offering strategies to control adhesive interactions, elicit specific cellular responses and improve the biocompatibility, performance and durability of prosthetic materials, this text studies the effect of topographical features on cell behaviours such as orientation, migration and differentation
