Erik Dent receives H. I. Romnes Faculty Fellowship

Erik DentMuch of the work neurons do takes place along axonal and dendritic processes and dendrites, raising the question how the substrates for those functions get there. Dr. Erik Dent’s work explores how neurons regulate the hauling of cargos along cytoskeletal tracks into tiny spine crevices and into the sheets of growth cones.

For his outstanding contributions not only as a scientist but also as a teacher and colleague, Dr. Dent has been awarded the fellowship that honors the late WARF Trustee President H. I. Romnes. This award is intended to recognize and support faculty up to six years past their first promotion to a tenured position.
