Research Summary

Dr. Leucht received his medical degree in 2002 at the Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany. He then started an orthopaedic residency at the Johann-Wolfgang-Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Dr. Leucht is a clinician/surgeon scientist and orthopaedic traumatologist with a longstanding interest in the molecular and cellular basis of fracture healing. During his postdoctoral research fellowship in the laboratory of Dr. Jill Helms at Stanford University he focused his efforts on (1) determining the underlying cell and molecular regulatory mechanisms involved in skeletal development and fracture repair, (2) investigating the role of the mechanical environment during fracture repair, and (3) stem cell-based tissue engineering strategies to enhance bone regeneration. In particular, he is the first author on a Development publication describing for the first time an adult function of Hox genes during skeletal regeneration. Dr. Leucht’s expertise and skills include in vivo fracture healing models in mouse, rat and rabbit, bone histomorphometry, genetically modified mouse models, in situ hybridization, microCT analysis, and routine cell and molecular biology techniques. He was awarded a Mentored Clinical Scientist Career Award (NIH K08) aiming at understanding the molecular and cellular mechanisms that underlie osteoprogenitor cell proliferation and differentiation. Specifically, he will investigate the Notch and Wnt signaling pathways and their role during reparative osteogenesis.
