Philip Britz Mckibbin
Professor, Chemistry & Chemical Biology

Philip Britz-McKibbin is a Professor at the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at McMaster University. He is currently a Cystic Fibrosis Canada Researcher, as well as associate member of the Department of Pathology and Molecular Medicine, and the Centre for Medicinal Cannabis Research at McMaster. His laboratory is also an affiliate member of The Metabolomics Innovation Centre (TMIC) - Canada's national metabolomics laboratory. Prior to starting his current position, he completed his doctorate research with David D.Y. Chen at the University of British Columbia (2000) followed by a visiting lecturer position at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in USA (2001) and a post-doctoral fellowship with Shigeru Terabe at Himeji Institute of Technology in Japan (2003). Dr. Britz-McKibbin leads a dynamic multidisciplinary research group in bio-analytical chemistry that focuses on cutting-edge metabolomics research for clinical medicine and population health based on innovations in capillary electrophoresis-mass spectrometry technology. Our primary motivation of our research program is to identify and quantify clinically relevant biomarkers that enable early detection and accurate diagnosis of genetic and chronic human diseases, including the validation of safe yet efficacious lifestyle interventions for disease prevention. Our work also aims to shed light into new mechanistic understanding of the pathophysiology of human disorders of unknown or complex aetiology.
