Material-driven fibronectin fibrillogenesis is a novel route to engineer the network structure and biological activity of fibronectin fibrillar matrices in analogy with their physiological cell-mediated assembly. We identify specific surface chemistries that promote the cell-free formation of physiological-like fibronectin fibrils in a time- and concentration-dependent process. Our most recent and relevant results, reviewed in the chapter, demonstrate the role of this material-induced fibrillogenesis in cell adhesion, extracellular matrix organization and degradation, and cell differentiation.
