Dr. Ian Gibson is an associate professor in pathology at Rady Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Manitoba.
His early research interests during medical school and anatomic pathology training focused on morphologic studies of the human kidney, particularly using scanning electron microscopy to examine the Bowman’s capsule for parietal podocytes and atubular glomeruli.
He is a surgical pathologist with over 25 years of specialist expertise in medical renal pathology and renal allograft pathology. He did a renal pathology fellowship in 1995-1996 at University of Alberta, under Dr Kim Solez. He has actively participated in the progressive development of the Banff Classification for Renal Allograft Pathology since 1995. He is actively involved in multiple pediatric and adult clinical trials in renal transplantation, providing core lab renal pathology. He collaborates with other groups in Canada in the molecular analysis of diabetic nephropathy. He has ongoing studies in assessing the non-neoplastic kidney damage in tumor nephrectomies, looking for prognostic indicators for post-operative renal function.
