Travis Eli Gibson, Ph.D.


Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MAPhD
2021 - 2026
Outstanding Investigator Award

We leverage tools from machine learning and control theory to understand biological systems. Control theoretic concepts are integrated both in the design of our optimization schemes and statistical machine learning models, as well as in the design of our in vitro and in vivo experiments. The Gibson Lab is part of the Division of Computational Pathology at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School. We are physically located in the Hale Building for Transformative Medicine (BTM) in Boston with space also at the MIT Stata Center in Cambridge. Dr. Gibson has primary faculty appointments at BWH and HMS with affiliate and secondary appointments at MIT and the Broad Institute

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
