Project Title: Subtractive Contact Printing of Fibronectin and EGF in Nanopatterned Cell Adhesion Arrays
Nanopatterned biomolecule adhesion substrates are developed using subtractive contact printing. The effect of spatial organization in growth factor stimulation is discerned. The role of integrin clustering in cell adhesion strengthening is investigated.
