Hiroshi Kawaguchi

Japan Community Health Care Organization
Japan

Research Interest:
Disease science, preclinical translational research leading directly to the treatment of skeletal disorders: osteoporosis, bone fracture, periprostheticosteolysis, ossification of spinalligaments, and osteoarthritis.

Profile:
Hiroshi Kawaguchi graduated from the University of Tokyo, and began his career as an orthopedic surgeon in 1985. He began as a researcher in the laboratory of Dr. Lawrence Raisz at the University of Connecticut in 1991. There he decided his life’s work would be on “disease science”, i.e. preclinical translational research leading directly to the treatment of skeletal disorders: osteoporosis, bone fracture, periprosthetic osteolysis, ossification of spinalligaments, and osteoarthritis. Since then, he had a career as a “surgeon scientist” in both laboratory and clinical aspects of these disorders, publishing 295 peer-reviewed original articles (total impact factor: 1465) in prestigious scientific journals such as Nat Med, Nat Mater, Nature, Science, JCI, Gene Dev, JCB, PNAS, Dev Cell, JBC, and JBMR. Importantly, some of these reported efforts have already led to clinical use, for example, a recombinant agent for fracture healing and a novel artificial joint with longevity. He have been an ORS member since 1995, and received the 2009 Kappa Delta Award. He was also awarded the 2006 Frank Stinch field Award of the Hip Society, the 2006 Basic Science Award of OARSI, and the 2011 Lawrence Raisz Award of ASBMR. He has also devoted himself to the education of young researchers. In fact, members of his group have been awarded the ASBMR Young Investigator Award each of the l6 years since l998, and three of them the President’s Book Award during that period (24 awardees in total).
