Conducting polymer-based multilayer films that direct cell alignment

What is it about?

We use an electric current passed through an electrically conductive biomaterial to align cells.

Why is it important?

The alignment of cells is a common feature of many tissues including bone, muscle, nerve and skin.

This reports an interesting study of electrically conducting multilayer films that can be used to align cells. I enjoyed the opportunity to work with an interdisciplinary team of scientists to develop these materials.
