The authors have advised the note section for Figure 1 on page 90 is incorrect. The correct Notes section is as follows:

Notes: SEM images showing the distribution of CNF in the PLGA matrix at 50:50 wt% at (A) random orientation and (B) aligned orientation to mimic the natural anisotropy of cardiac tissue. (C) AFM line scan of the 50:50 CNF:PLGA aligned composite, demonstrating micrometer-scale alignment of the CNFs on the PLGA surface. AFM scans for the randomly oriented CNFs in PLGA matched that of the CNF patterned region. Scale bars =20 µm. Reproduced from Asiri A, Marwani H, Khan SB, Webster T. Greater cardiomyocyte density on aligned compared with random carbon nanofibers in polymer composites. Int J Nanomedicine. 2014;9(1):5533-5539.12
