Cover Story (view full-size image): Over millions of years, nature has produced a wide variety of biological materials optimised for distinct functions. Many of these systems found in biology possess unique surface properties recognised to regulate cell behaviour. Integration of such natural surface properties in biomaterials can bring about novel cell responses and provide greater insights into the processes occurring at the cell–biomaterial interface. Using natural surfaces as templates for bioinspired design can stimulate progress in the field of regenerative medicine, tissue engineering and biomaterials science. This literature review aims to combine the state-of-the-art knowledge in natural and nature-inspired surfaces. View this paper
