Career Summary

Biography

On balance, opportunities to secure career achievements have not negatively impacted in excess of those constraints experienced by those researchers operating in an academic setting of an Australian tertiary institution. My career has focused on developing an international research profile, providing an intellectually stimulating research environment for RHD students and postdoctoral fellows, delivering undergraduate courses in ways that optimise understanding, critical thinking and technical skills together with accepting administrative duties for the public good. Assessment of my research profile can be measured against continuous funding from ARC across thirty three years, a total publication output of peer reviewed 106 research papers, 18 reviews and 20 book chapters (total citations >2,900 leading to a h-index of 31) as well as 30 invited oral presentations at international conferences. Success in training capable researchers is reflected by the relatively high proportion of past RHD students and postdoctoral fellows securing academic/research positions (see Expertise section). Claims of strong positive learning outcomes from delivery of undergraduates courses are supported by student evaluation survey scores exceeding 80 percentile values. Reasonable contributions have been made to the public good of the scientific community within and outside The University of Newcastle.

Research expertise

The paradigm that sink processes exert primary control over biomass distribution in plants (Patrick 1997) has guided my approach to discovering how nutrient transport is regulated. In established non-meristimatic sinks, control is restricted to sink transport processes (Patrick 1997). To examine these transport phenomena experimentally, we introduced an innovative model using developing legume seeds (Patrick & McDonald 1980) on which substantial progress has been made in understanding cellular pathway, mechanism and control of nutrient transport (Patrick & Offler 2001; Zhang et al. 2007). Employing novel structure/function approaches, CE Offler (University of Newcastle) and I showed that nutrient release/uptake occurs in specialised transport cells located at maternal/filial seed interfaces (Patrick & Offler 2001). These studies highlighted a central role for transfer cells in developing seeds (Offler & Patrick 1993). A claim since verified by physiological (McDonald et al. 1996) and molecular (Harrington et al. 1997) observations. In collaboration with CE Offler and SD McCurdy (University of Newcastle) a major research program has been undertaken to discover gene networks responsible for induction of and building the wall labyrinth (eg Wardini et al. 2007 a, b). With NA Walker (University of Sydney), we showed that sucrose release from maternal seed tissues was energy coupled by a proton antiport mechanism (Patrick 1997) and that uptake by their filial tissues occurs by sucrose/H+ symport (McDonald et al. 1996). The latter finding was the first direct demonstration of transport function by a higher plant transfer cell. These findings underpinned a collaboration with WB Frommer (Carnegie Institute, Stanford University) in cloning genes encoding sucrose/ (Tegeder et al. 1999), amino acid/ (Tegeder et al. 2000) H+ symporters and sucrose effluxers (Zhou et al. 2007). Recently, a molecular genetic approach established that sucrose transporters play a central role in determining biomass accumulation by seeds (Rosche et al. 2002). With SD Tyerman (University of Adelaide) and Walker, we discovered ion channels, including novel non-selective channels, responsible for release of phloem-imported ions from seed coats (Zhang et al. 2002). Coordination of transport events in maternal and filial seed tissues are considered to be regulated by a turgor homeostatic mechanism located in maternal seed tissue (Patrick 1997; Zhang et al. 2004). Our expertise in nutrient loading of developing legume seeds provided a strong information platform to undertake similar studies of cereal grains in collaboration with RT Furbank (CSIRO Plant Industry eg. Aoki et al. 2004). Working along similar lines to those described above, discovering the cellular pathway of phloem unloading in developing tomato fruits (Ruan and Patrick 1995) underpinned an ongoing collaboration with DW McCurdy that has identified hexose transporters as major determinants of fruit sugar levels (cf. Gear et al. 2000), a key agronomic trait. Intellectual property, derived from results obtained using forward and reverse genetic studies, is protected by a provisional patent (APPAN: 2006906647). The latter describes an experimentally validated approach to increase fruit sugar levels. A current consultancy for CSR to advise on a multimillion-dollar research program to increase sucrose content of sugarcane is predicated on my experience in nutrient distribution in plants.

Teaching expertise

Undergraduate

I have a commitment to, and enthusiasm for, achieving excellence in

optimising the learning experience of students at both under- and

postgraduate levels. I have taught at all levels in delivering undergraduate

Biology courses. My overall guiding principle is to offer a secure learning

environment in which students can assimilate the skills and basic

understanding required. The approach is predicted on first to be trained as a

scientist, then a biologist and ultimately a person competent in the particular

Biological sub-discipline being taught. To achieve these broad objectives, I

work at stimulating students to recognise the excitement of scientific

discovery and the practical implications of the topic at hand. This creates an

environment that empowers them to take charge of their learning process

while offering training in skills required to pursue a scientific inquiry. Such

skills include a capacity to question, to develop logical argument, to plan and

undertake experiments, to critically analyse information, to integrate ideas, to

think laterally and to communicate in both verbal and written forms.

Research Training

As a postgraduate supervisor, I am committed to offering a stimulating

research environment and training students toward being independent and

competent researchers. The prime focus of the latter is time management,

experimental design and execution, critical evaluation of the literature and

their results and scientific writing and presentation skills. This is achieved

through a number of approaches. Our group meets weekly to provide a

venue for students to discuss their findings in an informal setting. This

program is supplemented with one-on-one fortnightly meetings with each

student. The training students receive is put into rigorous practise by

encouraging them to participate regularly in national conferences and to

prepare their results for publication in peer-reviewed international journals.

In this context, our students have each published at least one paper and in

one case 8 papers from their research projects. Except for one student, all

Higher Degree students under my supervision have successfully completed

their degrees. Twelve of the 14 have pursued active careers in science and

hold positions in the tertiary sector (2 x Associate Professors in Australian

Universities; 2 x tenure track in US; 1 x Lecturer in Indonesia), industry (1),

government research institutions and agencies (3) and as a journal editor (1

Nature Biotech) and postdoctoral fellows (2).

Since 1976, when the first crop of Biological Science graduates became

available, I have supervised 22 Honours students three of whom received

University medals on graduation and 7 of whom have gone onto undertake

PhD programs under my supervision. My Honours supervision style follows

that outlined for the PhD program. The difference is that there is a more

intense feedback as they progress through assessment tasks of preparing an

essay, presenting two seminars and writing a thesis.

Seminal research paper on the molecular physiology of phloem water flows into developing seeds providing an integrated analysis of the phenomenon from the molecular through cell to whole tissue levels of functional organization. Draws attention to the possibility that capacity for transmembrane flows of phloem water, regulated by aquaporins, could exert considerable control over phloem delivery of all resources. Also demonstrates how water and nutrient flows are partitioned at the intercellular level ensuring that onward nutrient transport to developing embryos is not compromised by water returning to the parent plant through a xylem pathway. Good citaton rate in an area that has attracted little attention in the past.

This paper contributed to our understanding of how intercellular rates of nutrient transport across cell membranes are co-ordinated. The reported findings contribute a conceptual advance in understanding of a turgor homeostat mechanism located in the source cells. In particular cytoplasmic calcium is identified as a component of the signalling pathway. Citations: 7; Journal Impact Factor: 4.0; Journal Ranking in the Plant Sciences: 15/156.

This paper describes the first hint that sugar facilitators may function in coats of developing grain legume seeds and in particular contribute to release of sucrose from seed coats destined to support development of the enclosed embryo comprised primarily of two large storage cotyledons. These findings laid the foundation for a subsequent study that successfully cloned the genes encoding these transporters (see Zhou et al 2007).

Previous studies had established that sucrose transporters play a key role in cereal seed during their germination and subsequent establishment to reach the developmental state of an autotrophic seedling. However the nature of such a role had not been determined. The paper addressed this knowledge gap showing the sucrose transporters function in transferring sucrose from the endosperm to the phloem to supply carbon for shoot and root development.

Transition from pre- to storage phases of developing grain legume seeds is characterized by the onset of storage product accumulation (primarily storage protein and starch). Sugars have a dual function as fuel and developmental signals. In this context, overexpression of a potato sucrose transporter in developing pea seeds enhanced seed sucrose levels that led to an earlier onset of storage protein accumulation and accounted for a higher (14%) level of storage protein in mature seeds. Citations: 3; Journal Impact Factor: 2.3; Journal Ranking in the Plant Sciences: Patrick wrote the successful grant application, co-supervised the project, contributed to data interpretation and was primary manuscript author (50% contribution).

Three sucrose transporters cloned from legume seeds, when expressed in yeast, exhibited biochemical characteristics consistent with facilitated diffusion previously observed in native cell membranes. Identifying these membrane proteins represents a breakthrough discovery in plant biology (see F1000 commentary). Citation: 8; Journal Impact Factor: 6.5 Journal Rank in Plant Sciences: 6/156.

Previous studies had established that sucrose transporters play a key role in cereal seed during their germination and subsequent establishment to reach the developmental state of an autotrophic seedling. However the nature of such a role had not been determined. The paper addressed this knowledge gap showing the sucrose transporters function in transferring sucrose from the endosperm to the phloem to supply carbon for shoot and root development.

Transition from pre- to storage phases of developing grain legume seeds is characterized by the onset of storage product accumulation (primarily storage protein and starch). Sugars have a dual function as fuel and developmental signals. In this context, overexpression of a potato sucrose transporter in developing pea seeds enhanced seed sucrose levels that led to an earlier onset of storage protein accumulation and accounted for a higher (14%) level of storage protein in mature seeds.

This paper contributed to our understanding of how intercellular rates of nutrient transport across cell membranes are co-ordinated. The reported findings contribute a conceptual advance in understanding of a turgor homeostat mechanism located in the source cells. In particular cytoplasmic calcium is identified as a component of the signalling pathway. Citations: 7; Journal Impact Factor: 4.0; Journal Ranking in the Plant Sciences: 15/156.

This paper describes the first hint that sugar facilitators may function in coats of developing grain legume seeds and in particular contribute to release of sucrose from seed coats destined to support development of the enclosed embryo comprised primarily of two large storage cotyledons. These findings laid the foundation for a subsequent study that successfully cloned the genes encoding these transporters (see Zhou et al 2007).
