Novel insights into PTH bone anabolic signalling
Eric Hesse studied Medicine at Hannover Medical School in Germany where he became MD in 2003. He was trained in Orthopedic Surgery and graduated as PhD in 2007 in Genetics & Cell Biology in Hannover, Germany. In 2005, he moved as a Postdoctoral Fellow funded by the German Research Foundation to the laboratory of Dr. Roland Baron at Yale University School of Medicine. The laboratory moved to Harvard University Schools of Medicine and Dental Medicine in 2008, where he continued his work as a Postdoc and later as Junior Faculty until 2011. During this time, he worked on clinical and basic science projects focusing on osteoblast biology and bone homeostasis, leading to publications in top tier journals including JCB, JBMR, Dev Cell, Bone, and the NEJM. He has received numerous awards and fellowships, including the ASBMR Young Investigator-, John Haddad- and Harold Frost Award, the ECTS New Investigator Award, the Harvard Deans Fellowship, and the Gideon & Sevgi Rodan IBMS Fellowship. By the end of 2011, he moved to the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf in Germany, where he established an independent international research group as full, endowed, tenure-track Heisenberg- Professor. His research continues to focus on translational aspects of osteoblast function and bone remodeling as well as on cancer-induced bone diseases and is funded by the German Research Foundation, the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, the European Union, the Helmholtz Association, and several Foundations. Among other roles he is Director of Research of the Molecular Skeletal Biology Laboratory and of the Department of Trauma, Hand, and Reconstructive Surgery, in which he is practicing as an Orthopedic Surgeon. Furthermore, he is Adjunct Professor in the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology at Indiana University School of Medicine in the USA and serves as speaker of the BMBF/ANR bi-national Consortium “Integrative Biology of Osteoanabolic Networks in the Epigenome (iBONE)
