3D structural properties of polymeric scaffolds for tissue engineering play a key role in directing osteogenesis. In addition, much work has demonstrated that cell differentiation is sensitive to topology at sizes ranging from nano- to micro- to macroscale. Thus, the effect of different scaffold topologies on differentiation of human bone marrow stromal cells (hBMSCs) has been measured.
