Daniel Dickinson’s research focuses on the molecular mechanisms of cell polarization, which is a basic property of animal cells that is often disrupted in human diseases (especially cancer). He uses a unique, interdisciplinary approach that combines single-molecule microscopy, targeted genome editing, biochemistry and fluorescence imaging of living cells. Dickinson received his B.S. in biochemistry from Iowa State University in 2005, then spent a year as a Fulbright scholar in Switzerland before earning a Ph.D. at Stanford in 2011. Prior to joining UT, he has been a postdoctoral fellow at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
