Patrick completed his Ph.D. in Cellular and Molecular Pathology at the University of Pittsburgh in 2019 under the direction of Dr. Andrew Duncan. His doctoral thesis focused on studying the role of polyploidy in liver regeneration and aneuploidy-mediated adaptation to chronic liver disease. He joined the lab of Dr. Wolfram Goessling in 2019 as a postdoctoral fellow to study developmental biology, with a focus on the endoderm. Patrick's research is focused on utilizing CRSIPR/Cas9-generated zebrafish models, combined with diet challenges and RNAseq analyses, to determine how lipid metabolism influences liver growth and development, and whether modulation of early lipid metabolism affects fatty liver disease susceptibility.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
