He assists in developing standardized tests for most of Australia's Olympic sports. He is responsible for quality control among 27 sports institutes and university laboratories that test state, national, and Olympic-level athletes in Australia.

Gore has devised two calibration machines for assessing the accuracy and precision of VO2 systems for quantifying the accuracy of oxygen and carbon dioxide analyzers as well as flow devices. He also has collaborated in developing a device for dynamic calibration of skinfold calipers. Gore conducts research on the effects of altitude training on athlete performance and has helped the Australian Institute of Sport develop an ""Altitude House"" that simulates moderate altitudes.
