Pages 15

Embryonic stem cell (ESC) differentiation patterns on surfaces are affected by changes in the processing parameters of plasma-polymerized materials. This entry focuses on methods and analysis techniques used to determine how plasma surface treatments can direct the differentiation of ESC into specific target cells.
