    • Abstract


      Physical (topography, stiffness) and chemical instructions encoded in the extracellular environment govern cell behaviour. Understanding these interactions as they operate in native extracellular matrix and capturing the complexity of the spatiotemporal presentation of multiple such signals in synthetic scaffolds is a key to develop advanced functional materials for tissue engineering applications. This review discusses the advancement in engineered hydrogel materials as such scaffold to control cell fate.
