Cell adhesion is a complex mechanism that involves a dynamic interaction between the cell surface protein and specific ligands. It has become a crucial part to be understood when it comes to cell adhesion to biomaterial, especially in the tissue engineering field. In this chapter, we narratively discussed the basic principle of cell adhesion and the factors that affect this process. The characterisation of cells on biomaterials has also been discussed, as well as their application in the tissue engineering context.

Keywords: Biomaterial, Cell adhesion, Cell signaling, Microenvironment, Tissue engineering.
