Abstract

The primary goal of this chapter is to discuss cellular response to topographical cues at the nanoscale. We introduce the reader to the cellular machinery necessary to adhere and interact with substrates, present current fabrication techniques capable of generating nanoscale features on surfaces, and review how cells respond to these topographical cues at the nanoscale.
