Recent progress in applying electrospun nanofibers to regenerative medicine is reviewed by Younan Xia and co-workers on page 10. Following a brief introduction to electrospinning, they discuss how scaffolds are fabricated from electrospun nanofibers with well-controlled compositions, structures, and alignments. Applications of the scaffolds in four specific areas are highlighted: nerves, dural tissues, tendons, and the tendon-to-bone insertion site.
