Presented here are methods to fabricate magnetically modified biocompatible polymer scaffolds, which can be actuated by remotely applied magnetic fields. The magnitude of the actuation is shown to be biologically useful by simple tests in known magnetic fields and magnetic field gradients. Methods of processing the functionalized polymers into three-dimensional scaffolds have been demonstrated, suggesting wide applicability in tissue engineering.
