Patricia Jusuf

 

Patricia Jusuf is a Genetics Lecturer in the School of Biosciences, at the University of Melbourne where she also leads a research group.Patricia received her PhD at the University of Melbourne, Australia in 2006. She undertook postdoctoral training as a CJ Martin fellow at the University of Cambridge, UK.

In 2011, she joined the Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute, Monash University to establish her research program focused on neural development and regeneration. Her research interest lies in understanding how the generation of different neuron subtypes are controlled genetically both by factors acting intrinsically within developing progenitors and extrinsically by factors arising from the surrounding developing organ tissue. Focusing on the retinal neurons of the visual system, the lab studies neural development and regeneration in the zebrafish model making use of its accessibility, fast development, ease of molecular manipulations and in vivo time-lapse imaging capabilities.
