Compounded topographical and physicochemical cueing by micro-engineered chitosan substrates on rat dorsal root ganglion neurons and human mesenchymal stem cells
In this study, micro-engineered chitosan substrates were employed to investigate the compounded effects of topography, roughness and stiffness on the response of DRGs and hMSCs.

Training nonlinear elastic functions: nonmonotonic, sequence dependent and bifurcating
Soft Matter, 2021, Advance Article DOI: 10.1039/D0SM02189J, PaperDaniel Hexner Material training is a new approach for endowing a material with precise functionality based on principles of self-organization. We demonstrate examples of nonlinear functions realized through training, that are difficult to attain by design.
