Recent research has enhanced the development of substrates that serve as models of extracellular matrix and their use in studies of cell adhesion and migration. Advances include the development of methods to prepare substrates having ligands immobilized in controlled densities and patterns, and recent work that is developing dynamic substrates which can modulate, in real-time, the activities of ligands. These technologies are providing new opportunities for studies of cell-extracellular-matrix interactions.
