Dr. med. Reichert’s group focuses on pancreatic development and disease with a strong interest in the molecular underpinnings of cellular plasticity in organogenesis, regeneration, and cancer initiation and dissemination. Using complementary in vitro and in vivo assays, the laboratory addresses questions related to both basic as well as translational biology. Expertise in development of genetic mouse models allows targeted manipulation of candidate genes and their subsequent molecular and phenotypic characterization. Using a combination of high-throughput transcriptional profiling as well as genetic lineage labeling, the laboratory can interrogate both the biochemical and cellular effects of the introduced genetic manipulation. In particular, the generation of primary pancreatic cells lines from genetically-engineered mouse models and their analysis in three-dimensional culture systems as well as their orthotopic and intravascular re-introduction into mice allows the laboratory to address specific steps in cancer formation and the metastatic cascade.
After graduating medical school in 2008 from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) with summa cum laude, Dr. med. Reichert remained there to start his residency under the supervision of Prof. Dr. med Roland Schmid at the Department of Gastroenterology. During his clinical training, he was recruited for his postdoctoral studies to the laboratory of Dr. Anil K. Rustgi (Chair, Division of Gastroenterology, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania). After rising to Research Associate and completing his work in Dr. Rustgi’s laboratory, Dr. med. Reichert returned to Munich where he started his own laboratory at the Klinikum Rechts der Isar of the TUM. His work has been published in several high-ranking journals such as Genes and Development, Journal of Clinical Investigation, multiple Cell journals, and Nature Protocols. He has won numerous awards including a National Pancreas Foundation Fellowship, Abstract of the Year from the American Gastroenterological Association, and the American Association of Cancer Research Scholar Award. He has mentored multiple doctoral and post-doctoral fellows and supervised the thesis of a dual-degree student. 
Dr. med Reichert welcomes inquiries from highly motivated and intellectually curious scientists at all levels of training.
