In recent tissue engineering applications, the advance of biomaterials has focused on the devising of biomimetic materials that are directing new tissue formation and capable of causing specific cellular responses. These advances can be controlled by modifying the devising parameters of the materials. The biomimetic materials potentially mimic many roles of ECM in tissues. For the homogeneous distribution and biocompatibility of scaffolds by cell migration with biomimetic materials, cell migration is studied because it has a important role in physiological phenomenon and in pathologies; cancer metastasis, immune response or embryonic development. This review discusses the migration of cells with biomimetic materials for tissue engineering. It is also summarized that the recent advances of cell migration with biomimetic materials in 2-D and 3-D for tissue engineering.
