Patrick’s research focuses on the chemical synthesis of a range of antimicrobial peptides. One project focuses on host defence peptides which been sequenced and identified from Australia’s native fauna with unknown mechanisms of action, while others are novel cyclic peptides which were identified¬†using RaPID mRNA display on a range of bacterial and viral targets. Outside of the lab, Patrick likes to play volleyball, board games, and work out.
