PROFILE: My group's research interests include rare obesity disorders and lipodystrophies. We are currently recruiting subjects for the CIHR-funded study 'Rare Obesity Disorders Informing Common Disease.' This study incorporates state-of-the-art genotyping (SNP Microarrays, Whole Exome Sequencing and Whole Genome Sequencing) with detailed phenotyping (DEXA Scans, Resting Energy Expenditure, whole-body MRI and serum proteomics including adipocytokine profiling) to find the underlying cause of disease in patients with rare and undescribed obesity and lipodystrophy syndromes. In addition to helping people with rare disorders, we expect that we will identify new genes and pathways involved in human body weight regulation in the general population.

Dr. Gibson is a Clinical Geneticist at Children's and Women's Health Centre of British Columbia, and Scientist Level 1 at the Child and Family Research Institute at UBC. He received his MD from the University of Western Ontario in 1995, completed Residency in Medical Genetics at the University of Calgary in 2000, and received his PhD from the University of Cambridge in 2005. In the past, Dr. Gibson has been awarded a CIHR Health Professionals Fellowship, an MSFHR Postdoctoral Fellowship, a CIHR-IG Clinician Investigator Award, a CCHCSP Career Enhancement Award and CIHR Clinician Scientist Awards (Phases 1 and 2). Dr. Gibson currently holds Clinician Scientist awards from CIHR and the Child and Family Research Institute. He also runs the CFI-supported Laboratory for Obesity Genetics and Indirect Calorimetry. His research into rare obesity disorders and lipodystrophies is supported by CIHR's Institute of Nutrition, Metabolism and Diabetes.
