The cover demonstrates a general approach to construct electrical conducting polymer nano-networks which allow cells to attach to the surface and proliferate. By controlling the oxidation polymerization and assembling rate, functionalized poly(3,4-ethylen edioxythiophene) (PEDOT) nano-networks are constructed. They display very low cytotoxicity and enable cell growth on top of the nanostructures. This provide a promising platform for cell engineering. Further details can be found in the article by Hsiao-hua Yu et. al. on page B423.
