Tiffini C. Gibson, PhD

Tiffini-Gibson-Laboratory

Tiffini earned  a B.S. in Animal Science from Texas A&M University in 1999. Through her work with horses and other livestock on farms and in veterinary clinics, Tiffini realized she had a particular interest in Reproductive Biology.  She then earned an M.S. in Endocrinology and Reproductive Physiology from the University of Wisconsin in Madison.  It was in Madison were Tiffini learned bovine and porcine IVF. After a bovine research project in Asia, she returned to the U.S. and accepted an embryologist position at Women and Infants Hospital in Providence, RI.

After a year, Tiffini decided to go back to school to earn her PhD.  She began her studies at the University of New Orleans in Conservation Biology.  Due to the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, she relocated to Detroit, MI where she earned her PhD in Physiology with a concentration in Reproduction at Wayne State University.  Tiffini’s PhD thesis was titled: Impact of the Mitochondrial Genome on Preimplantation Development in the Rhesus Macaque.  She performed her experiments working directly with the rhesus macaque colony at the Caribbean Primate Research Center at the University of Puerto Rico.  Tiffini lived in San Juan, Puerto Rico for 2 years before joining us here at RMA of Texas.

Due to her extensive knowledge of Assisted Reproduction Technologies (ART) in humans as well as multiple other species, Tiffini is an excellent addition to our laboratory.

Tiffini has published multiple peer reviewed journal articles from her research, as well as review articles and has lectured and presented at conferences. Her research interests include:

  • Oocyte and embryo development and selection
  • Impact of aging on embryo development
  • Mitochondrial function during embryo development
  • The relationship between mitochondrial function and ovarian senescence
  • Genomic and proteomic analysis of oocytes and embryos
