The use of porous PLGA scaffolds to differentiate iPSCs to retinal phenotypes is a feasible pretransplantation approach. This adds to an important knowledge base; understanding how developing retinal cells interact with polymer substrates with varying structure is a crucial component of optimizing cell therapy strategies.
