I’m from Houston, Texas. I got my BS in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Houston, where I also worked in a laboratory using advanced imaging technology to mechanically characterize biological tissue. I’m currently a part of Dr. Harman’s Re-MED lab located at the CUBEInC campus in Greenville where I will be developing computational models of orthopedic medical devices, participating in translational clinical research, and pursuing industrial projects related to reusable medical devices. After graduating, I plan on entering the medical device industry or involving myself in a non-profit organization, preferably specializing in low-resource settings.
Craig Miller is a native of Holly Hill, SC. He currently serves in the South Carolina National Guard as a Second Lieutenant Platoon Leader in the 151st Expeditionary Signal Battalion. He received his Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from The Citadel. His background is in power, electronics and network security. His past research experience consisted of a summer long project at the Medical University of South Carolina where he worked with the Epidemiology Department. They conducted a feasibility study on the use of Telemedicine to diagnose Alzheimer’s Disease in patients that were in rural South Carolina. He also did a small study on the properties of silicene crystal structures and how they interact with silver atoms with Dr. Lok C. Lew Yan Voon, Dean of College of Science and Mathematics at the University of West Georgia. Craig will be working diligently with Dr. Jordon Gilmore and his team to develop biosensors that enable quantification in chronic wounds and other applications.
After graduating from Clemson University in 2016 with a B.S. in Biochemistry, Jillian Milanes landed a job working as a lab manager for Dr. James Morris, a Genetics and Biochemistry professor here at Clemson. During this time, her responsibilities included testing panels of small molecule inhibitors against an important metabolic enzyme and performing viability assays against the parasite, Trypanosoma brucei. This experience was all she needed to appreciate how challenging – and fun – research can be. She developed a passion for drug discovery and decided to pursue her doctorate in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. She now works on the pathogen Naegleria fowleri, which is commonly known as the “brain-eating amoeba”. Her work will help the field gain insight into the cellular biology of this understudied organism. Failure is her fuel in the laboratory, as she is endlessly curious to understand “why” an experiment did not produce the expected results. After graduation, she hopes to work as a research scientist or project manager, where she can continue working on therapeutic development for infectious diseases. When she is not busy with experiments, Jillian enjoys running, hiking, and doing puzzles.
