She has extensive experience in teaching, research, and the management of research grants.


Dr. Justine S. Gibson obtained her Bachelor of Veterinary Science (BVSc) with Honours Class 1 and a University Medal from the University of Queensland in 1996. She later pursued a PhD in Veterinary Microbiology at the same institution, completing it in 2010 with a thesis investigating the epidemiology of multidrug-resistant Escherichia coli and Enterobacter spp. in companion animals. In recognition of her outstanding work, she received the University of Queensland Dean’s Commendation for Outstanding Higher Degree Thesis in 2011. Additionally, Dr. Gibson earned a Graduate Certificate in Higher Education from the University of Queensland in 2013, reflecting her commitment to excellence in veterinary education and teaching.

Professional Experience

Dr. Justine S. Gibson is currently an Associate Professor in Veterinary Bacteriology and Mycology at the University of Queensland, a position she has held since January 2022. In this role, she is actively involved in teaching, research, and supervising higher degree students. From February 2010 to January 2022, she served as a Lecturer and later a Senior Lecturer in Veterinary Bacteriology and Mycology at the same institution, contributing significantly to the education of veterinary science and veterinary technology students. Dr. Gibson’s academic career is complemented by her practical experience as a veterinarian, which she gained from 1996 to 2003. Her extensive experience in both clinical practice and academia equips her with a unique perspective on veterinary microbiology and molecular biology, focusing on antimicrobial resistance, infection control, and diagnostic methods.

Research Interests

Dr. Justine S. Gibson’s research interests lie at the intersection of veterinary microbiology and molecular biology. She focuses on the epidemiology and development of antimicrobial resistance in production and companion animals, investigating critical issues such as AmpC and extended-spectrum β-lactamases, fluoroquinolone resistance, and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and S. pseudintermedius. Her work also explores novel methods for treating and controlling multidrug-resistant bacterial infections, including the use of probiotics and other innovative therapies. Additionally, Dr. Gibson is interested in metagenomics and the microbiota of wildlife, production, and companion animals, respiratory diseases in production animals, and the development of point-of-care diagnostics, particularly for bovine mastitis. Her commitment to advancing veterinary microbiology is evident through her active involvement in both research and the practical application of her findings.
