C. Michael Gibson, M.S., M.D. is an interventional cardiologist, cardiovascular researcher and educator who pioneered our understanding of the "open artery hypothesis" as well our understanding of the importance of restoring flow downstream in the capillary bed in the "open microvasculature hypothesis" in heart attack patients. Gibson was chosen as one of the most influential scientific minds between 2002 and 2012 in a 2014 report from Thompson Reuters [3].

Gibson founded www.wikidoc.org, the world's most widely viewed open source textbook of medicine (viewed 700,000 to 2.2 million times daily, hundreds of millions of times annually). He is Editor-In-Chief of 7,000 contributors. Gibson served as medical lead in a partnership with Google, Microsoft and Yahoo to design a scheme of classifying medical content for the internet (www.schema.org) to improve medical search results. Gibson also founded www.clinicaltrialresults.org and has conducted 900 TV / video interviews.

For four years in a row, Gibson has been chosen by his peers as one of Boston's Top Doctors in Boston Magazine. U.S. News & World Report also lists Gibson as one of America's top doctors. Gibson invented several of the measures of coronary blood flow that are widely used today (the TIMI frame count and the TIMI myocardial perfusion grade).

Gibson has led his own Academic Research Organization (PERFUSE) for over 25 years now, and has been principal investigator of or led core services for 106 clinical trials, the results of which have been published in leading journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine. PERFUSE offers a full line of trial management, social media portals, CEC, DSMB and core lab services for phase 1-4 trials worldwide. Under Gibson's direction, PERFUSE created the master database that unified data from over 25 years of TIMI studies (TIMI 1-50) in nearly 100,000 patients and coordinated data analyses for the TIMI study group and functioned as the TIMI Data Coordinating Center which he directed. As a Senior Investigator of the TIMI Study Group Gibson has led phase 1-4 clinical trials, and cardiology megatrials of over 15,000 patients.

Education and Academic Positions

Dr. Gibson received his B.S., M.S., and M.D. degrees from the University of Chicago. He was an Intern, Resident and Chief Resident at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School. He received his training as an interventional cardiologist and served as the Director of the Coronary Care Unit at Beth Israel Hospital, Harvard Medical School. Dr. Gibson then served as the Chief of Cardiology and Director of Interventional Cardiology at the West Roxbury Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Harvard Medical School. While at the West Roxbury VA, he also served as an Associate Physician at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He then moved on to Allegheny General Hospital as Vice Chairman of Medicine for Clinical Research and Director of Invasive Cardiology. He subsequently relocated to the west coast and served as Associate Chief of Cardiology, Chief of Interventional Cardiology and Director of the Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory at University of California San Francisco (UCSF). In 2000, Gibson returned to Harvard Medical School in Boston. Until 2003, Dr. Gibson served as Chief Academic Officer and Director of Core Services at Harvard Clinical Research Institute (HCRI), until 2005 he served as Associate Chief of Cardiology and Director of Academic Affairs in the Cardiovascular Division at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Until 2009 he served as the Director of the TIMI Data Coordinating Center at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital. He is currently a full time interventional cardiologist and Chief of Clinical Research in the Cardiovascular Division at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School.

Research

Dr. Gibson’s work has largely focused on investigating the pathophysiology of coronary artery disease and the efficacy of pharmacologic and device based therapies. His work has been presented in over 1000 manuscripts, abstracts, trial summaries, textbooks and textbook chapters.

Over 20 years ago, Gibson founded PERFUSE, an academic research organization which has served as the angiographic, MRI, CT and EKG core laboratory and data coordinating center for a wide variety of studies including trials in acute coronary syndromes, antiplatelets, antithrombins, reperfusion injury, atherosclerosis regression, new devices, angiogenesis, and new imaging modalities. Gibson directed the TIMI angiographic core laboratory and invented the TIMI frame count (CTFC) in which the number of cineframes for dye to reach standardized distal landmarks is counted (an index of epicardial blood flow). Gibson also invented the TIMI myocardial perfusion grade (the blush, a measure of microvascular perfusion). The TIMI frame count and the TIMI myocardial perfusion grade are both multivariate predictors of 2 year mortality in acute MI, and are now widely used both clinically and in the assessment of new reperfusion strategies. The methods invented by Gibson and his research have played a critical role in our understanding of "the open artery hypothesis" and more recently in what Gibson has termed "the open microvasculature hypothesis". On Google scholar, the TIMI Frame Count is listed as being cited in over 1900 articles (for updated numbers click here) and the TIMI myocardial perfusion grade is listed as being cited in over 800 articles (for updated numbers click here).

Under Gibson's direction, PERFUSE created the master database that unified data from over 25 years of TIMI studies (TIMI 1-50) in nearly 100,000 patients and coordinated data analyses for the TIMI study group and functioned as the TIMI Data Coordinating Center.

Within the Thrombolysis In Myocardial Infarction (TIMI) Study Group, Dr. Gibson has served as a Principle Investigator of multiple international trials within the TIMI Study Chairman’s Office.

Dr. Gibson's specific research interests include the following:

  • Acute Coronary Syndrome Research Including unstable angina, non ST elevation MI and ST elevation MI: Gibson invented the angiographic endpoints that are used in assessing drug and device therapies such as the TIMI frame count and the TIMI myocardial perfusion grade. He has been the principal investigator of trials of novel thrombolytic agents (BB 10153) and novel mechanisms of delivery of thrombolytic agents such as ICE T – TIMI 49 (Intra-coronary Tenecteplase During Balloon Angioplasty). Gibson led the angiographic core laboratory analysis of a number of thrombolytic trials (TIMI4 (tPA and APSAC), TIMI 10 trials (TNK), ADVANCE MI (TNK + eptifibatide), TIMI 14 (lytic + abciximab), FASTER (lytic + aggrastat), CLARITY (lytic + clopidogrel), STEP AMI (lytic + cangrelor)

In 2010, WikiDoc was selected as a Google Grant recipient. Dr. Gibson has personally made over 70,000 edits to WikiDoc.

Schema.org

Although there is a vast amount of medical information on the internet, search engine's often return results that are not highly specific. This is because search engines do not account for the structure of the underlying medical knowledge or the relationships among keywords. Gibson was one of the co-creators of a www.schema.org-based schema that allows webmasters and content publishers to mark up health and medical content on the web. The health and medical schema is intended to make it easier for people to locate the optimal web pages by exposing structured information contained in web pages to search engines. As a result, more relevant content rich pages will be returned in search results.

Internet Educational Sites

Dr. Gibson is Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Clinical Trial Results where he created the first weekly TV show for Cardiologists "This Week in Cardiology" and has provided slides summarizing clinical trials since 1999. Gibson also created TIMI.org, the website of the TIMI Study Group.
