Conducting polymer-based materials are promising for application as tissue scaffolds for the replacement or restoration of damaged or malfunctioning tissues, because a variety of tissues respond to electrical stimulation. This review focuses on conducting polymer-based materials with biomimetic chemical, mechanical and topological properties, and recent progress toward the fabrication of clinically relevant tissue scaffolds is highlighted.
