In the field of regenerative medicine and tissue engineering, biomaterials are critical for the encouragement and maintenance of biological activities. Scaffolds can be cell-instructive, structural and fabricated from smart materials. Design considerations include the creation of well-defined materials, cell-material interactions, and controlled-release bioactive agents.
