    It is well known that surface features, such as topographical or chemical cues, can affect cell behavior from initial attachment and migration to differentiation and production of new tissues; this phenomenon is called contact guidance. A great improvement in studies concerning this phenomenon...

    Various micropatterns have been fabricated and used to regulate cell adhesion, morphology and function. Micropatterns created by standard photolithography process are usually rectangular channels with sharp corners (microgrooves) which provide limited control over cells and are not favorable for...

    Cell migration contributes to cancer metastasis and involves cell adhesion to the extracellular matrix (ECM), force generation through the cell's cytoskeletal, and finally cell detachment. Both adhesive cues from the ECM and soluble cues from neighbouring cells and tissue trigger intracellular...
