Polymer surfaces with a wide range of hydrated surface mobility are developed by a simple deposition method with supramolecular block copolymers. The morphologies of adhering stem cells are greatly dependent on the surface mobility of polymers, and this induces significant changes in the cytoskeletal signaling pathway to direct the downstream stem cell differentiation.
