Electrical stimulation of stem cells on conducting polymer biomaterials for bone tissue engineering.

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. This is the first example of biomineralized conducting polymers in the literature.
