Presentation Preview:  Cardiac fibroblast populations expand following injury and mediate repair, while contributing to adverse remodeling and ventricular dysfunction. A growing body of evidence suggests that in addition to their matrix-secreting properties, cardiac fibroblasts have a wide range of functions in cardioprotection, regulation of inflammation and tissue repair. This presentation will discuss emerging concepts on the role of fibroblasts in cardiac repair, remodeling and fibrosis
