Therapies for corneal disease and injury often rely on artificial implants, but integrating cells into synthetic corneal materials remains a significant challenge. The electrochemically formed collagen-based matrix presented here is non-toxic to cells and controls the proliferation in the corneal fibroblasts seeded onto it. Histology and biomolecular studies show a behavior similar to corneal stromal cells in a native corneal environment. Not only is this result an important first step toward developing a more realistic, multi-component artificial cornea, but it also opens possibilities for using this matrix to control and contain the growth of cells in engineered tissues.
