Brian Gillette, PhD

As a biomedical engineer at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island, I specialize in conducting translational research on wound healing and regenerative medicine. Before joining the hospital in 2016, I studied biomedical engineering at Columbia University, where I invented new tissue engineering and cell therapy technologies.

After finishing my degrees, I continued to work as a research scientist at Columbia University’s Department of Biomedical Engineering and cofounded a start-up to develop my inventions for clinical and research applications.

In my time at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island ’s Department of Surgery, I have been working as a research scientist with Scott A. Gorenstein, MD, developing and conducting studies that examine wound healing outcomes with innovative regenerative therapies compared to standard-of-care treatments. I have also developed new approaches for automated quantitative analysis of wound tissue specimens and have collaborated with artificial intelligence researchers to analyze wound photos.

I am actively collaborating with a number of other laboratories at the NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island Research Institute, including developing an engineered human intestine model with Dr. Mahmood Hussain’s lab to study drug adsorption and intestine physiology.
