Polymeric micro- and nanofibers featuring versatile functions with additional physical and chemical properties are useful in creating various platforms or constructs. Electrospinning and microfluidic technologies are the two promising approaches to produce polymer fibers at micro- and nanoscale. In this Thesis, we report on the preparation of micro- and nanofibers featuring different functions, obtained by electrospinning and microfluidic approaches. Finally, a 3D complex platform was assembled to demonstrate a route towards preparing multifunctional 3D porous constructs.
