The ability to control the position of cells in an organized pattern on a substrate has become increasingly important for biosensing and tissue engineering applications [1–3]. With the advent of nanofabrication techniques, a number of researchers have studied the effects of nano-scale grooves on cell spreading, migration, morphology, signaling and orientation [4–6]. Recent studies have shown that cell adhesion/spreading can be influenced by a nanostructured surface . In most current studies, the pattern dimensions are much smaller than the size of a cell. In this paper, we focus on studying cell response to micro scale patterns instead of nano-scale patterns.
