Overview

Dr. Huttenlocker is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Cell & Neurobiology 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 microanatomy in order to understand the complex origins and early evolution of growth and physiology in mammals and other terrestrial vertebrate groups as recorded in their fossilized bones and teeth. As a functional paleobiologist, Dr. Huttenlocker's teaching philosophy emphasizes shared patterns in vertebrate development that shed light on human function and health.
