Abstract

KEY POINTS
◊ Carbon-based materials offer enhanced biological response and tunability.

◊ Carbon-based scaffolds offer tensile properties comparable with those of current synthetic tissue scaffolds.

◊ Cellular behavior on carbon-based scaffolds is enhanced by varying material orientation, porosity, and crystallinity
