      Well-ordered block copolymer films are promising for the production of large areas of sub-micrometer applications, such as catalytic devices and the control of micro- and nanoscale interactions with cells. The review by Malmström and Jadranka Travas-Sejdic focuses on the emerging area of block copolymer films for the creation of ordered arrays of proteins or peptides. The cover features a transmission electron micrograph of a block copolymer film in the hexagonal cylindrical phase. The graphical elements show how block copolymers self-assemble, and how such self-assembly can be used to order proteins—which, in the illustration, are presented as “pebbles” within the cylinders.

      To transform standard flat polystyrene surfaces into textured microenvironments for three-dimensional (3D) cell cultures, Michael E. DeRosa, Yulong Hong, Ronald A. Faris, and Hongwei Rao describe a solvent treatment process. Cell culture experiments typically use thermoplastic plates that have 2D well bottoms. A 3D cell culture plate made of polystyrene in a conventional, inexpensive format could be an attractive technology since cultures could then be conducted on the same material as cell biologists have been using for decades. The study demonstrates that microtextured polystyrene surfaces for 3D cell cultures can easily be made with off-the-shelf microplates by a simple solvent treatment process. DOI: 10.1002/app.40181
