Ian Gibson, MS

I have been a biology and chemistry lab instructor, lab manager, and lab safety officer at USCB since 2014. I teach labs for Biological Principles I and II, Human Anatomy and Physiology I, Ecology and Evolution Lab, Gen Physiology Lab, and General Chemistry I and II. I relocated to the United States in 1999 from the United Kingdom. I received my MS in Human & Medical Genetics from Baylor College of Medicine in 2013, where I focused on wet lab work on human genomic disorders, genomic rearrangements in bacteria, as well as dry lab work in statistical genetics and informatics. My thesis at BCM was High-Throughput Genetics and Genomics Elucidate Molecular Mechanisms and Disease. I am particularly interested in the areas of genomic rearrangements, genome evolution, and science policy.

Outside of USCB I am interested in sprint cycling, strength training, exercise physiology as it relates to these, astronomy, philosophy, and literature.
