Hot Article: Cell migration on a micropost array

Micromachining processes have been developed for observing durotaxis (mechanotaxis) – the directional movement of cells.  Bovine aeortic endothelial cells were seeded on a micropost array, fabricated by a highly reproducible method. The cells exhibited higher displacement and speed in the direction of increasing micropost stiffness.
