Abstract

Identification of biomaterials that support appropriate cellular attachment, proliferation and gene expression patterns is critical for tissue engineering and cell therapy. Here we describe an approach for rapid, nanoliter-scale synthesis of biomaterials and characterization of their interactions with cells. We simultaneously characterize over 1,700 human embryonic stem cell-material interactions and identify a host of unexpected materials effects that offer new levels of control over human embryonic stem cell behavior.
