Anna Huttenlocher is the Vilas Distinguished Professor in the Departments of Medical Microbiology and Immunology and Pediatrics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She is a physician scientist who seeks to understand how cell migration is regulated and how defects in cell migration contribute to human disease. Her recent work has centered on understanding how leukocytes are recruited to sites of tissue damage and resolution of inflammation by neutrophil reverse migration. Toward these goals her laboratory has developed tools to image and probe cell-cell interactions during innate immune responses using zebrafish as a model system.
