PI: Eric S. McLamore

Associate Professor
Dr. McLamore is a professor of Bioengineering at the University of Florida in the Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering Department, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. Dr. McLamore is the PI of the NanoBiosensors lab, a Fulbright Fellow, and UF Field to Fork Faculty Fellow, and the USDA/APLU National New Teacher of the Year (2017).
Dr. McLamore's work focuses on development and application of nanobiosensors for rapid monitoring and/or diagnostics of small molecules, viruses, and bacteria. These sensors are applied for supporting planetary health research, which is at the nexus of agricultural, environmental, and public health.
Many of our research projects are part of the Global Alliance for Rapid Diagnostics
