What is it about?

We describe the electrical stimulation of stem cells on conducting polymer biomaterials for bone tissue engineering.

Why is it important?

We describe the electrical stimulation of stem cells on conducting polymer biomaterials for bone tissue engineering. The biomaterials are composed of polycaprolactone nanofibers and polypyrrole.
