Trends in cell therapy and tissue engineering ask for polymer scaffolds which reflect requirements for tuned mechanical properties, suitably designed three-dimensional architecture as well as demands on the specific interaction between biomaterial and living cells. Adhesion, proliferation and differentiation of cells on polymer substrates can be modified by providing solid-state signals to the cells through specific structures exposed on the polymer surfaces.
