Dr. Gilmore earned a B.S. in Electrical Engineering, with honors, from The Citadel, Military College of South Carolina in Charleston, SC in 2010. While playing linebacker for the Bulldog football team for four years, Dr. Gilmore developed a passion for applying his electrical engineering skillset to medical and biology-based challenges. After graduation and a short stent in industry as an automation engineer at Nucor Steel Berkeley (Charleston, SC), Dr. Gilmore joined the Clemson bioengineering department as a PhD student in Dr. Karen Burg’s lab, the Institute for Biological Interfaces of Engineering (IBIOE). While in IBIOE, Dr. Gilmore was also selected to be a Call Me Doctor™ Fellow and became the first graduate of the program. His dissertation research focused on the development of woven polymeric scaffolds for critically-sized bone defects. Using a variety of textile techniques for fabrication and characterization, he evaluated various scaffold geometries for their effect on osteogenesis. Upon graduation, Dr. Gilmore became a Clemson Pathways Fellow, and joined the Multiscale Manufacturing Lab, under Dr. Rodrigo Martinez-Duarte. Here he focused on developing a centrifugal microfluidic platform for the separation of pathogenic cells from heterogenous cell populations using yield-stress responsive Bingham plastic materials. Dr. Gilmore rejoined the Clemson Department of Bioengineering as an Assistant Professor in August 2017. In addition to directing the Sensors, Materials, and Analytics for Regenerating Tissues (SMART) Lab, Dr. Gilmore also directs the Call Me Doctor™ Program. He brings his interdisciplinary experience and electrical engineering background to teaching in the bioengineering department where he instructs the Bioinstrumentation and Imaging (BIOE 3700) course and participates in departmental design courses. Outside of work, Dr. Gilmore enjoys spending time with his beautiful wife and daughter, exploring nature and is an avid fisherman.
