Do we really understand the process by which dead cardiac muscle cells are replaced by scar tissue? It is a centrally important topic in cardiac regenerative medicine. This recent article of Dylan Mostert and her team sheds new light on how the mechanics of the beating heart play a role into its microscopic structure.
This very exciting work is selected as ‘featured paper’ AND selected for the SciLights initiative by AIP Publishing in the journal of APL Bioengineering: https://aip.scitation.org/doi/10.1063/10.0016716
Congratulations Dylan and colleagues! Carlijn Bouten Nicholas Kurniawan Bart Groenen Leda Klouda, PhD Robert Passier Marie-Jose Goumans
