Patrick Larkin has always been passionate about biochemistry and the wonders of nature, which led him to pursue a BS in biochemistry from the University of Iowa.

After graduation, Patrick’s adventures took him to , where he contributed to the development of a vaccine for Chagas disease, caused by the tropical parasite Trypanosoma cruzi. From there, he joined Dupont, where he helped establish a plant biotechnology laboratory, diving deep into the mysteries of plant genetics.

Patrick later earned a PhD in biochemistry at Texas A&M University. His dissertation unraveled the secrets of carbohydrate metabolism in rice, paving the way for agricultural innovations.

In 2000, Patrick moved to Corpus Christi, Texas, where he is an associate professor of biochemistry at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi and a member of the Nueces County Medical Society Alliance. His passion is the conservation of seagrasses, which he explores in the classroom and through research endeavors.

Outside of academia, you’ll often find Patrick indulging in his love for the great outdoors or channeling his creativity into woodworking projects, classical music, and literature.

Patrick is grateful for the love and support of his wife, Allyson Larkin, MD, a family physician and president of the Nueces County Medical Society, and their three children who bring him joy and inspiration.
