Education
Dr. Trsicia W. Hendrickson is a professor of biology at Morehouse College and associate provost for resarch and training. Her research interests include molecular insights into gamma-gamma tubulin lateral interactions within the gamma-tubulin ring complex.

Dr. Hendrickson earned a B.S. in biology from the University of the Virgin Islands and a Ph.D. in cell biology from Emory University. After completing her post-doctoral training in the FIRST-IRACDA program at Emory, she joined the Morehouse College faculty, where she has maintained an active research program focused on (1) elucidating the role of primary cilia in cancer and (2) investigating role of HBCUs in STEM training and diversification. Dr. Hendrickson is a servant-leader, as demonstrated by her service to the College on the Faculty Council, the Institutional Effectiveness Council, the 2018 Reaffirmation of Accreditation Leadership team, and other faculty committees such as Faculty Research, Faculty Development, the Curriculum and Education Policy Committee. Her passion for student success is demonstrated in the leadership roles she has undertaken in training and mentoring initiatives such as the MARC U-STAR program, the Morehouse-Johns Hopkins Vivien Thomas Scholars Partnership, and the James King, Jr., Medical Admissions Program. As the director of research and sponsored programs, she leads strategic initiatives to enhance the institution’s research enterprise. She has rendered service to the profession as a member of the Women in Cell Biology Committee of the American Society for Cell Biology and as reviewer for NIH, NSF, and HHMI. Dr. Hendrickson is an alumna of the Center for the Advancement of STEM Leadership (CASL) program and the HERS Institute.
