Dec. 10, 2014 - Don McLemore, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Chemistry and director of the Office of Industry Relations and Economic Development, has been appointed acting vice president for the Division of Research & Economic Development at Georgia Southern University.

“It is critical that responsibilities of the Division of the Vice President for Research & Economic Development and the Georgia Southern University Research and Service Foundation, Inc., continue uninterrupted in Dr. Charles Patterson’s absence,” said President Brooks Keel.  “Please join me in supporting Dr. McLemore in this new role.”

Patterson, who is currently Georgia Southern University’s vice president for the Division of Research & Economic Development, will serve as the interim president of Georgia Southwestern State University from Jan. 1 through June 30, 2015.

Prior to joining Georgia Southern in 2011, McLemore served as chief operating officer for Herty Advanced Materials Development Center in Savannah, Georgia, where he launched new programs in biofuels development and restructured and expanded toll-manufacturing programs. Before joining Herty, he served as director of Polymer Industry Relations at Georgia Tech.

McLemore earned his Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry and polymer science, a Master of Science in polymer science and physics and a doctorate in polymer science from the University of Southern Mississippi. He is also a graduate of the American Graduate School of International Management, Executive Education Program in Business Management.

The Office of the Vice President for Research & Economic Development promotes research and scholarship efforts of the University’s faculty, staff and students. The Division provides startup funding, support of undergraduate research, intellectual property and technology transfer, economic development outreach and oversight of research integrity and research compliance.

McLemore will also serve as the acting chair of the Research & Service Foundation.
