Sean Gibbons is an Assistant Professor of Systems Biology and a Washington Research Foundation Distinguished Investigator at the Institute for Systems Biology in Seattle, WA. He is a Data Science Fellow at the eScience Institute and an Affiliate Assistant Professor in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Washington.

The Gibbons Lab is interested in how ecological communities in the gut change and adapt to individual people over their lifespans and how these changes impact human health. The lab develops computational and experimental tools for investigating host-associated microbial communities to explore the interactions between ecology, evolution and ecosystem function, applying these insights to develop personalized interventions for improving human health and well-being.
