News Brief: Paul Patterson Dies

July 8, 2014. Paul Patterson, well known to many SRF readers for his work at the interface of the nervous and immune systems, died June 25, 2014, at the age of 70. He was a regular participant in discussions at the Forum and was set to make an even bigger impact on schizophrenia research in the next few years through his collaboration with Alan Brown, but fell victim to brain cancer late last year.

If you want to learn more about Paul's life and work, read his obituary at Caltech, and also check out the 2011 volume he edited with Alan Brown, The Origins of Schizophrenia, and his own 2011 book, Infectious Behavior: Brain-Immune Connections in Autism, Schizophrenia, and Depression (see review by Dolores Malaspina).

Some of his thoughts on the immune connection to schizophrenia are contained in an interview he did with SRF in 2011.

Our condolences to his family and his colleagues.—Hakon Heimer.
