Peter Gibson
Peter Gibson is Professor of Gastroenterology at Monash University, and Adjunct Professor at RMIT University. He was formerly Professor-Director of Gastroenterology at Alfred Health and, prior to that, Professor of Medicine and the founding Head of the Eastern Health Clinical School. He is a Past-President of the Gastroenterological Society of Australia, and was founder and inaugural Chair of IBD-Australia. He spent several years on the Council of the Asian-Pacific Gastroenterology Association and is a Board member of the Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology Foundation. He is currently an Associate Editor of Alimentary Pharmacology and Therapeutics. From a background of research in epithelial cell biology, he directs a program of translational research focussing largely in the areas of inflammatory bowel disease, coeliac disease and irritable bowel syndrome. Major aspects of his work include the use of diet to control gut symptoms and influence outcomes in chronic intestinal conditions, manipulation and assessment of the gut microbiota and its function, and optimisation of therapies for inflammatory bowel disease. His achievements have included leading the Monash team that developed and validated the low FODMAP diet for functional gut symptoms, and better defined the role of gluten in non-coeliac gluten sensitivity, work which has had profound effects on attitudes to and use of dietary therapies in chronic intestinal diseases. He has been invited to lectures at all the major Gastroenterology Scientific meetings across the world. He has published more than 450 peer-reviewed papers and was awarded the Distinguished Research Prize by the Gastroenterological Society of Australia in 2010 and the Vice Chancellor’s Award in Research Impact (Economic and Social Impact) in 2016. His team’s research was listed in ‘Ten of the Best’ by the National Health & Medical Research Council of Australia, 2016.
