As cells proliferate and differentiate, they alter their environment. Future advanced biomimetic scaffolds must be able to adapt to these changes and meet the ever-changing needs of developing tissues. We anticipate synthesizing biomaterial scaffolds with functional cross-links and pendant side groups that interact with surrounding cell population at three levels: at the contact interface (nano/meso level), at the architectural (micro level), and at the biofunctional (macro level). 28 Functional Marine Biomaterials Nanofabrication using biological principles of assembly and design is still in its infancy.
