Cell Interactions with PEMUs- Dr. Keller

INSI researchers in the Schlenoff and Keller groups are investigating polyelectrolyte multilayers as biocompatible coatings.  The figure below shows examples of how rat aortic smooth muscle cells interact differentially with surfaces terminated with different polyelectrolytes including Nafion, PAH, and PAA:PAEDAPS.  Patterns of Nafion printed onto cell repellent surfaces control cell shape and cytoskeleton organization.
