Self-assembling proteins, such as type I collagen or fibrin(ogen), constitute highly-relevant primary building blocks for the elaboration of biomaterials for tissue repair. However, such a biomimetic approach requires a precise understanding of their physico-chemical properties and how these are impacted by the presence of other components (molecules, polymers, nanoparticles) as well as by the processing techniques. In vitro studies of the cellular response to these constructs is a complementary approach to probe their structure and properties as well as a mandatory step before their biomedical application can be foreseen.
