The cover describes the development of nanofibers with encapsulated growth factors has been emerged as a promising approach in neo-tissues applications. The proposed nanofibrous systems provide a novel approach to both simulate the extra-cellular matrix for cell adhesion and also for localized delivery of signaling molecules and growth factors. Growth factors could be loaded into nanofibers using different techniques including physical adsorption, covalent bonding or encapsulation.
