Scientists want to unravel the complex combination of chemical and physical cues that choreograph stem cell behavior. Now researchers have used a simple nanoscale technique to add texture to glass slides and have shown that human embryonic stem cells grown on smooth surfaces behave differently than those grown on rough ones (ACS Nano, DOI: . . .
