Abstract

The engineering of skeletal muscle requires platforms that facilitate the proliferation and maintenance of primary muscle stem cells (myoblasts) and muscle fibre maturation in a manner that reflects native muscle structure. We have been investigating the use of microstructured conducting polymer surfaces for the orientation and electrical stimulation of cells and tissues and have developed a hybrid biodegradable and conducting polymer platform suitable for ex vivo muscle growth and differentiation.
