Previous research from our group indicated that nanofiber scaffolds promoted osteogenic differentiation of human bone marrow stromal cells (hBMSC) and similar gene expression to osteogenic supplement (OS) induced osteogenic differentiation . Biological variation between hBMSC donors can result in differences in cell response to materials. To advance tissue engineering treatments into the clinic and to develop robust characterization of cell-material interactions, the response to materials for several donors needs to be characterized. In this study, we examined the cell response to five material groups (three material substrates and two substrates plus OS) for six hBMSC donors evaluated by differences in gene expression.
