Patrick J. Hussey is the Professor of Plant Molecular Cell Biology at the University of Durham. He received his PhD in Biology from the University of Kent at Canterbury in association with the John Innes Centre in Norwich. After postdoctoral work at the University of Minnesota and the John Innes Centre, he took up a lectureship in Royal Holloway University of London where he was awarded a Personal Chair in 1999. He moved to the University of Durham in 2000. His main interest is in the structure, function and regulation of the plant cytoskeleton and its potential role in biotechnology.
