CMD® Mission

Jordon Gilmore

Partnering underrepresented IBIOE engineering/science doctoral fellows with education scholars at Clemson University, to bring cutting edge science/engineering concepts to the community and to the K-12 classroom. The goal of the Call Me Doctor® program is to leverage the skills and interests of the fellows to excite and inform the public about cutting edge research. The fellows gain enhanced communication skills and a broader learning experience than that of a traditional research environment
