Summary It was found that conductive scaffolds can play an important role in tissue engineering of electrically excitable cells. Also, microscale pores significantly enhance cell infiltration into the scaffolds compared to nanoscale pores. Finally, nanoscale surface features with bio-active components can lead to great improvements in tissue regeneration.
