Overview

Dr. Huttenlocker is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Integrative Anatomical Sciences who serves as an instructor in the Years I & II Microanatomy curriculum. He received his PhD from the University of Washington in 2013 and held a National Science Foundation-funded postdoctoral fellowship in comparative vertebrate physiology at The University of Utah from 2013 to 2016. His current research uses hard-tissue histology to understand the complex origins of mammalian behavior, growth, and endothermic physiology in non-mammalian synapsids and other early tetrapods (as recorded by their fossilized bones and teeth). As a functional paleobiologist, Dr. Huttenlocker's teaching philosophy emphasizes shared patterns in vertebrate development and evolution that shed light on human and mammalian anatomy & physiology.
