The goal of this study was to evaluate the crosstalk between human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) and human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) in peptide amphiphile (PA) scaffolds in vitro. I hypothesized that co-cultured cells would exhibit the best osteogenic and angiogenic responses, compared to HUVECs or hMSCs alone
