Christoph Reinhardt (born 25.12.1978 in Reutlingen / Germany) studied Biochemistry at the University of Zurich / Switzerland (1998 – 2003). He earned his Ph.D. in Human Biology on “Analyses on Molecular Mechanisms of Activation of intravascular Tissue Factor” in the laboratory of Prof. Bernd Engelmann at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich / Germany (2003 – 2007).

From March 2007 to June 2010 Christoph Reinhardt received postdoctoral training in the laboratory of Prof. Fredrik Bäckhed at the Wallenberg Laboratory for Cardiovascular Research at the University of Gothenburg / Sweden, where he worked as an EU Marie Curie Fellow and was trained in germ-free mouse technology. Following his 3 years postdoctoral training, Christoph joined he joined the Center for Thrombosis and Hemostasis (CTH) in Mainz as a junior group leader. In December 2016, Christoph Reinhardt was appointed an assistant professorship on “Experimental Hemostasis and Gnotobiotics”.

His recent work combines intravital imaging of thrombosis with gnotobiotic mouse technology to explore the role of the commensal microbiota in arterial thrombosis and atherothrombosis.
