    Genetic Modulation of Macrophage-Fibroblast Crosstalk to Enhance Tissue Healing after Myocardial Infarction
    Role Description: The goal of this project is to determine how selective modulation of macrophage subtypes in the infarcted heart alters the fibrotic response, using genetic lineage tracing of cardiac fibroblasts and myofibroblasts.
    Role: Principal Investigator
