Dr. Jeremy Gilbert

Hansjörg Wyss Smart State Endowed Chair for Regenerative Medicine

Regenerative Medicine

  • The Gilbert lab focuses on biomaterials, orthopedic implants, cell-material interactions, surfaces of biomaterials, metallic biomaterials corrosion, and electrochemical interactions between biomaterials and living systems.
  • The lab undertakes implant retrieval analyses, failure analysis of medical devices, and the development of implant performance tests.
  • The lab has led in understanding of mechanically assisted crevice corrosion (tribocorrosion), theory and model development, and is studying inflammatory cell induced corrosion and the use of electrochemical processes to eradicate biofilm-based infections.

Jeremy L. Gilbert, Ph.D., FBSE is the Hansjörg Wyss Smart State Endowed Chair for Regenerative Medicine, professor of Bioengineering at Clemson, director of the Combined Clemson University-Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) Program in Bioengineering and professor of Orthopaedics at MUSC. He is Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Biomedical Materials Research - Part B: Applied Biomaterials and past president of the Society for Biomaterials. Dr. Gilbert was Professor in the Department of Biomedical and Chemical Engineering, Syracuse University, Founder of the Syracuse Biomaterials Institute, Associate Dean for Research and Doctoral Programs in the College of Engineering and Computer Science, and Chair of the Department of Bioengineering and Neuroscience at Syracuse. Dr. Gilbert was an assistant and associate professor at Northwestern University in the Department of Biological Materials. Dr. Gilbert is a fellow of the International Union of Societies of Biomaterials Science and Engineering and of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineers. He serves on the Medical Devices Committee of the Food and Drug Administration.

Dr. Gilbert's research program studies biomaterials and medical devices, performance of implants in the human body, corrosion of metallic biomaterials and interactions between metals and polymers and the body.
