Nanoporous gold can be produced by a facile self-assembly process that is compatible with conventional microfabrication techniques. On page 172, Erkin Seker and co-workers demonstrate this material's biocom-patibility and its capability to deliver drugs for modulating cellular response. The cover image, acquired with a high-resolution scanning electron microscope, illustrates an astrocyte latching onto the grooves of a nanoporous gold surface.
