In recent years, considerable effort has been devoted to the design and controlled
fabrication of structured materials with functional properties. The layer by layer buildup of polyelectrolyte multilayer films (PEM films) from oppositely charged polyelectrolytes1
offers new opportunities for the preparation of functionalized biomaterial coatings. This technique allows the preparation of supramolecular nano-architectures exhibiting specific properties in terms of control of cell activation and may also play a role in the
development of local drug delivery systems. Peptides, proteins or DNA, chemically bound to polyelectrolytes, adsorbed or embedded in PEM films, have been shown to retain their
Recently, tissue engineering has merged with stem cell technology with interest to develop new sources of transplantable material for injury or disease treatment. Eminently
interesting, are bone and joint injuries disorders because of the low self-regenerating capacity of the matrix secreting cells. We present here for the first time that embedded
BMP-2 and TGFβ1 in a multilayered polyelectrolyte film can drive embryonic stem cells to
the cartilage or bone differentiation depending on supplementary co-factors. We selected
a model system made from layer by layer poly-ℓ-glutamic acid (PℓGA) and poly-ℓ-lysine succinylated (PℓLs) films into which BMP-2 and TGFβ1 have been embedded. Our results
demonstrate clearly that we are able to induce osteogenesis in embryonic stem cells
mediated by growth factors embedded in a polyelectrolyte multilayer film9.

The world has changed in the past 10 years. Companies can go from obscurity to an estimated $100 billion market cap(Facebook) or from zero to $1 billion in revenue very quickly (Groupon did it in two years), or from near collapse in the late‘90s to become one of the world’s most valuable companies (Apple). To succeed today, companies need to embrace change, inways that include learning to mark
