Dr. Gilmore is a Professor of Psychiatry and is Vice Chair for Research and Scientific Affairs. He is Director of the UNC Schizophrenia Research Center, an NIMH-sponsored Conte Center for the Neuroscience of Mental Disorders. Dr. Gilmore is a member of the UNC Neuroscience Center and the Curriculum in Neurobiology, and serves as Scientific Director of the UNC Biomedical Research Imaging Center. Dr. Gilmore also directs the UNC Center for Excellence in Community Mental Health and is clinically active in the Schizophrenia Treatment and Evaluation Program (STEP).
Dr. Gilmore’s research focuses on the study of early brain development and risk for schizophrenia. His research uses MRI to study structural and functional brain development in normal and high risk children, as well as in twins to better understand the impact of environmental and genetic risk factors on early brain development, and the relationship of structural brain development to cognitive development in early childhood.
