Stem cells, such as embryonic stem (ES) cells and induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, are an attractive cell source for regenerative medicine. For medical use of stem cells, many technologies need to be developed by both biological and engineering approaches. Design of substrates for stem cell culture is one of the important issues in the stem cell research. In this article, we review recent progress in materials research associated with stem cell research.
