Bio

Kevin F. Gibson, MD, is an associate professor of medicine in the Division of Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care Medicine and assistant professor in the Department of Neurobiology, Anatomy, and Cell Sciences at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. A graduate of UMDNJ-Rutgers Medical School, Dr. Gibson completed an internship and residency in internal medicine at Emory University Affiliated Hospitals in Atlanta, Ga., and pulmonary medicine and research fellowships at the University of Pittsburgh. He is board-certified in internal medicine, pulmonary medicine, and critical care medicine and has written 30 abstracts and articles. Dr. Gibson currently serves as president of the Association for Respiratory Health of Minorities.

Clinical Interests

Dr. Gibson is the medical director of the Dorothy P. and Richard P. Simmons Center for Interstitial Lung Disease. He is in charge of all clinical research in the center and is the PI on several drug studies. Dr. Gibson’s research interests focus on interstitial lung diseases including idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, autoimmune lung disease, and sarcoidosis and on translational studies to identify unique biomarkers of disease activity in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and other interstitial lung diseases, and studies of gene expression profiling in lung and peripheral blood in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.

Academic and Research Interests

Dr. Gibson's research focuses on clinical trials of novel therapeutics in interstitial lung disease, the discovery of biomarkers of disease activity and progression, and clinical translational studies of disease pathogenesis.
   
This high resolution CT scan of the chest demonstrates the most important features seen in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, including honeycomb change and traction bronchiectasis.
   
This slide demonstrates noncaseating granuloma associated with sarcoidosis involving the lung. The circular scars represent a form of inflammation and scarring that is characteristic of sarcoidosis involvement of the lung.
   
This image shows the typical appearance of hypersensitivity pneumonitis on high resolution CT scanning of the chest. The image shows bilateral diffuse soft nodular densities reflecting the unique pattern of inflammation and scarring seen in this disease.
