    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Huttenlocker is an Associate Professor in the Department of Integrative Anatomical Sciences where he directs graduate courses in Microscopic Anatomy (IAS 511A & 511B) and serves as the Microanatomy discipline coordinator for Years I & II medical students. 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.

    The Huttenlocker lab at USC investigates the origins of mammalian skeletal function, and applies hard-tissue histology & biomedical imaging techniques to modern and fossil bone in order to interrogate the complex origins of mammalian behavior, growth, and endothermic physiology ("warm-bloodedness"). The lab also utilizes polarized light microscopy techniques to study collagen fiber orientation in bone and its relevance to bone behavior & function. The lab conducts regular paleontological fieldwork in the southwestern United States (funded by NSF and the Department of the Interior) and southern Africa (NSF and South Africa's National Research Foundation). Dr. Huttenlocker's teaching philosophy emphasizes shared patterns in vertebrate development & evolution that explain how & why the body functions the way it does.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
