Patrick Walton's Biography

Patrick Walton, Associate Professor, Michigan State University

S. Patrick Walton received his B.ChE. from Georgia Tech, where he began his biomedical research career in the Cardiovascular Fluid Dynamics Laboratory. He then attended MIT where he earned his M.S. and Sc.D. while working jointly with researchers at the Shriners Burns Hospital and Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. While at MIT, he was awarded a Shell Foundation Fellowship and was an NIH Biotechnology Predoctoral Trainee. Upon completion of his doctoral studies, he joined the Stanford University Genome Technology Center, receiving an NIH Kirschstein post-doctoral fellowship. He joined Michigan State University in 2004 and his research is focused on engineering active nucleic acids through mechanism-based design and developing novel tools for parallel measurements of biomolecules.

Design of the most active siRNA therapeutics against a target, remains a challenge. We will discuss recent results from our approach to mechanism based design of siRNA therapeutics, focusing on the protein-siRNA interactions that occur during silencing and the vehicles used to deliver the siRNAs to the cytoplasm.
