Hi I’m Patrick and I Head the Liver Immunology Program at Centenary.
My group have recently discovered a new, never-before identified cell subset located in the outer membrane of the liver which could inform more targeted treatments for the fastest growing cancer killer in Australia, liver cancer as well as liver disease.
My passion for research is fuelled by an eager curiosity as well as a burning desire to dissect and understand the mechanisms that would explain a complex biological phenomenon or process. Research satisfies my personal intellectual need while at the same time increasing our basic knowledge, improving current treatments and potentially saving human lives.
I have Italian parents, was raised in Tunisia, North Africa, attended a French school and went to University of Lyon in France.

It’s nice to meet you. Would you like to ask me a question?
