CLEMSON – The Department of Genetics and Biochemistry’s Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry, one of two undergraduate degrees offered by the department, has received full seven-year accreditation by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology through Oct. 14, 2025. “ASBMB accreditation focuses on core concepts and learning outcomes rather than specific courses or […]
New research stemming from scientists at Clemson University has optimized a novel imaging technique that could help doctors better visualize tumors. The research – published recently in the International Journal of Nanomedicine – expanded upon a technique known as multi-photon imaging, which uses near-infrared light to excite fluorescent molecules that are injected near the site of a tumor.
With an $11 million grant from the National Institutes of Health Center for Biomedical Research Excellence, Clemson University has launched the South Carolina Center for Translational Research Improving Musculoskeletal Health, or SC-TRIMH, a new research center that will bring together scientists from across South Carolina to change the way musculoskeletal disorders are diagnosed, treated and even studied.
CLEMSON, S.C. – Clemson University students Katie and Wilson Hawkins have heard tales about their great, great uncle Otis Morgan and his heroics during some of most hellish events of WWII their whole lives.

Clemson faculty have been awarded a grant from the National Institutes of Health to investigate the use of 3D imaging that could allow for quicker diagnosis of children with Phelan-McDermid syndrome, a rare genetic condition that causes intellectual and physical disabilities. Due to the rarity of the syndrome, diagnosis is difficult and can have families waiting months or years for conclusive answers. Researchers hope their work will speed up diagnosis.
