Abstract

original image

Cell-material interaction on biomaterials depends on presented chemical surface groups. The cover shows the low density lipoprotein - uptake of endothelial cells on carboxy-functionalized polymer substrates for tissue engineering applications. More details can be found in the article of Novosel et. al. on page B467.
