Gurpreet Baht, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and a faculty member of the Duke Institute of Molecular Physiology. Dr. Baht’s work focuses on bone health, specifically understanding fracture repair in the context of aging.
Tissue repair and regeneration diminish with age. In the elderly, bone repair in response to injury occurs at a slower pace with deposition of extraneous tissue. A number of molecular and cellular processes have been implicated in aging fracture repair. Dr. Baht utilizes mouse models and tissue culture techniques to investigate fracture repair and aging.
