Biography

Dr. Gibson is a Clinical Geneticist with an interest in overgrowth, severe obesity and lipodystrophy. Our group applies state-of-the-art assessment of body fat mass, fat distribution and circulating hormones to individuals with overgrowth, severe obesity and genetic lipodystrophy syndromes. In collaboration with the British Columbia Genome Sciences Centre, we combine this detailed metabolic profile with targeted assessment of copy-number variants and specific mutations in an effort to discover the cause of the condition. Ultimately, our goal is to design therapies for these rare disorders. We then hope to translate these discoveries into viable treatments for prevention of obesity, type 2 diabetes, brain aneurysms and cardiovascular disease in the population as a whole.
