CLEMSON, South Carolina – The stepping stones of scientific advancement rely on the identification of genes involved in cytokinesis, the processivity of dynein motor proteins, the construction of neural circuits – or some other equally-obscure-sounding research – because these are the studies that lay the groundwork for the development of cures or novel disease treatments […]
Leland Dunwoodie, a biochemistry senior in the College of Science, was recently named 2017-18 President of Undergraduate Student Senate.
Clemson University psychology professor Cynthia Pury is leading a nationwide study that will track the public's response to the Aug. 21 eclipse.
Department of physics and astronomy lecturer Amber Porter and graduate student Andrew Garmon have been busily promoting the "Great American Eclipse" at numerous outreach events.
Here's what you need to know to see the Aug. 21 total solar eclipse at Clemson University's “Eclipse Over Clemson” viewing party.
Voldemort, The Joker, Maleficent and the Wicked Witch of the West were just a few of the suspects in a simulated murder investigation at a recent summer science camp for fifth- through seventh-graders held on the campus of Clemson University.
A Clemson graduate student in biological sciences was recently featured in both PBS and BBC productions of a nature film that focuses on wildlife's response to the changing seasons in Yellowstone National Park.
Spectators who come to Clemson University for the Aug. 21 “Eclipse Over Clemson” event can enjoy the expansive view of the sky from a designated “tailgazing” spot at the Snow Family Outdoor Fitness and Wellness Center.
CLEMSON, South Carolina – Visualizing biological cells under a microscope was just made clearer, thanks to research conducted by graduate student Yifei Jiang and principal investigator Jason McNeill of Clemson University’s department of chemistry. With the help of Rhonda Powell and Terri Bruce of Clemson’s Light Imaging Facility, the team was able to develop a […]

Research conducted by Zhicheng Dou, an assistant professor of biological sciences in the College of Science, was featured in the June 2017 issue of Nature Microbiology. The findings, concerning the parasitic disease toxoplasmosis, suggest that the parasite’s “stomach” is a key target for drug development.
CLEMSON, South Carolina — Three Clemson University College of Science researchers recently shared their areas of expertise with a group of 16 graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and faculty members from other universities in a training workshop. Dubbed “Camp Lasernode,” the June 12-16 workshop aimed to teach the attendees — some of whom came from outside […]
Yunhui Peng, a doctoral student in Clemson University College of Science’s department of physics and astronomy, received a 2017 Chateaubriand Fellowship from the Embassy of France in the United States.
Electronic noses and paper-based biosensors might sound like inventions out of a futuristic drama, but one College of Science researcher is set to make them a reality.
On June 7 in a lab in Clemson University’s Kinard Hall, approximately 30 K-12 teachers from Laurens County schools assembled makeshift telescopes out of meter sticks and magnifying glasses. Using a simple addition equation, they investigated how parallel rays of light pass through convex lenses to converge at a focal point.
