A recent work by Professor Jin Nam’s research team is featured on the cover of the June issue of Advanced Healthcare Materials (Vol. 5, Issue 12, Page 1524). Their work developed polymeric scaffolds with specific mechanics to control the mechanical microenvironment of human induced pluripotent stem cells (hIPSCs), which regulated stem cell behavior. The results demonstrate a facile, practical method to enhance the cell type-specific differentiation of IPSCs by subjecting cells to the appropriate mechanical cell niche. The optimization of such scaffolding systems is expected to improve the directed differentiation efficiency of stem cells, thus enhancing their therapeutic applicability.
