Dr. Huttenlocher’s laboratory is focused on understanding the basic molecular mechanisms that regulate cell migration and inflammation, and the implications of these mechanisms to human disease. We have extensive experience with cell migration research, and live cell imaging using both human cells and zebrafish. We have developed disease models of innate phagocytes and models of host-pathogen interactions using zebrafish. We have pioneered approaches to visualize and manipulate cell motility in zebrafish using photomanipulation. We have a strong track record in resource generation, and in sharing reagents with the research community (Addgene has shared more than 600 constructs from our lab). I was chair of the Gordon conference on Directed cell migration, Co-chaired a Banbury conference, serve on the planning committed for American Society of Cell Biology, serve as a senior editor at the Journal of Cell Biology and am Chair of a NIH study section (ICI). I have been committed to the education of both PhD and MD scientists in the basic mechanisms of cell motility and innate immunity using zebrafish as a model system.
