Cover for the current issue of Advanced Healthcare Materials:
Erica Ueda and Pavel A. Levkin present a simple method to produce precise micropatterns of hydrophobic liquids by using hydrophilic–hydrophobic substrates.On page 1425, these micropatterns are shown to possess long-term stability, excellent cell-repellency, no cytotoxicity, and higher efficiency than conventional PEG or superhydrophobic surfaces in controlling eukaryotic cell adhesion.
