WINSTON SALEM, North Carolina – In 2006, Ashley Rickey graduated from Clemson University with a B.S. in microbiology, a degree path she chose as the foundation for a medical career. Rickey knew from her high school days that she wanted to be a physician, so it was no surprise when she began medical school at […]
CLEMSON, South Carolina – The TIGERS ADVANCE Distinguished Speaker Series, which showcases the scope of diversity among STEM scientists, is now accepting applications for the Spring 2018 lecture series. “TIGERS ADVANCE: Transforming the Institution through Gender Equity, Retention and Support” is a program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) aimed at reducing gender inequality […]
Art Voter, a laboratory fellow at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, will be the featured speaker at the 2017 Sobczyk Public Lecture. Voter will speak on accelerated molecular dynamics – a computer simulation approach that unveils the behavior of materials at the atomic level – at 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 1 in the Bellsouth Auditorium at the Madren Conference Center.
Physics and astronomy colleagues Terry Tritt and Jian He have surveyed the field of thermoelectric energy in an invited review for the journal Science.
CLEMSON, South Carolina – Joseph Kolis and R. Kenneth Marcus, two faculty members in the department of chemistry, have been awarded titled professorships. Kolis, a professor of inorganic chemistry, is now an endowed professor – the Tobey-Beaudrot Professor of Chemistry. This professorship was made possible by a gift from Paul L. Tobey (class of ’35) […]
A team of Clemson University astrophysicists has visually confirmed that a small rock found in Melanie Casselman’s yard is a meteorite from outer space.
CLEMSON, South Carolina – “Follow your dream. Know what you want to do, and pursue it” were the simple words of advice from dentist Ronnie D. Lee for Clemson students at the third annual “Tigers on Call” event on Sept. 22. A Clemson alumnus of 1976, Lee has been practicing dentistry in Aiken, South Carolina, […]
CLEMSON, South Carolina – The familiar signs of a research symposium were on view on Sept. 22 when students from the College of Science gathered in the Hendrix Student Center to present the latest results of their independent research. Easels, posters and sharply dressed undergraduate students from the departments of biological sciences, genetics and biochemistry, […]
In a new catalog, a team of Clemson physicists has documented exactly where the most extreme, violent sources of energy exist in the universe.
A team of physicists at the Clemson Nanomaterials Institute have developed a device, called a U-TENG, that is designed to take mechanical motion – like the waves in the ocean, the tap of a foot or the clap of a hand – and transform it into electricity. Once generated, the electricity can power lights or electronic devices, such as calculators.
In a collaboration with the Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL), Clemson University professor Stephen Creager is pursuing basic research that could aid in the disposal or repurposing of radioactive hydrogen isotopes.
CLEMSON, South Carolina – In August, a study conducted by physics and astronomy professors Chad Sosolik and Joan Marler was highlighted in the American Institute of Physics’ publication, titled “Scilight.” Featuring the most exciting research in physical science from associated AIP Publishing Journals, Scilight is published on a weekly basis for a far-reaching scientific audience. […]
The “Great American Eclipse” set the stage for a number of experiments on Aug. 21, one being the release of two high-altitude balloons from the campus of Clemson University.
In the middle of his workday, Clemson University entomologist Peter Adler stepped outside his office to take in the Aug. 21 total solar eclipse. Adler’s intention was to see whether creatures of the night – such as katydids, cicadas and moths – would make an appearance during the 2 minutes and 37 seconds of totality.
CLEMSON, South Carolina – Campus is bustling with the return of students for the 2017-18 academic year – 16 of whom are new graduate students in the department of chemistry. The students came from universities across the country, and will explore the vast amount of research emphases in the department before choosing their focuses in […]
