Dr Gibson graduated with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science in 1996 and after working in veterinary practice for a number of years undertook a PhD investigating the epidemiology and basis of fluoroquinolone resistance in multidrug-resistant Escherichia coli and Enterobacter spp. isolated from companion animals. Dr Gibson’s research spans the fields of veterinary microbiology and molecular biology.
Dr Justine Gibson is a veterinary microbiologist with ten years’ experience researching zoonotic and animal bacterial diseases, focusing on population genetics, molecular epidemiology, microbial pathogenesis and antimicrobial resistance. She was awarded her PhD “Epidemiology and basis of fluoroquinolone resistance in multidrug-resistant Escherichia coli and Enterobacter spp. isolated from companion animals” in 2010. She was awarded a Dean’s commendation for outstanding achievement for her PhD thesis (given to the top 10% of UQ PhD theses awarded in a given calendar year). She commenced her current appointment as Lecturer in Veterinary Bacteriology and Mycology at the School of Veterinary Science, at The University of Queensland in 2010. Since then she has supervised two honours students to completion and currently supervises two PhD students, two MPhil candidates and one Masters by coursework student. Her current research interest include antimicrobial resistance with a focus on multidrug-resistant Escherichia coli and Enterobacter spp. isolated from production and companion animals, the development of novel therapies for MDR infections; infectious diseases of wildlife; bovine and porcine respiratory disease and bovine mastitis.
