Cover: The ability of cardiac fibroblasts to sense the topography of their microenvironment varies with substrate stiffness. Stiffness and topography have an interactive effect on cell morphology and alignment. This paper demonstrates that 18 kPa topographically modified substrates optimally induce elongation and alignment of cardiac fibroblasts. Further details can be found in the article by S. Al-Haque, J. W. Miklas, N. Feric, L. L. Y. Chiu, W. L. K. Chen, C. A. Simmons, and M. Radisic* on page 1342.
