The College of Science advances mathematics, physical sciences and life sciences and mobilizes curiosity-driven faculty and students who seek to enhance life on the planet through groundbreaking research.
CLEMSON – A collaborative project over a year in the making has transformed a large, under-utilized room in Cooper Library into an innovative, active-learning classroom that is accommodating more than 900 fall-semester students in multivariable and differential equations courses. The SCALE-UP classroom, which stands for Student-Centered Activities for Large Enrollment Undergraduate Programs, is equipped with […]
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. This week, they got to meet a man who owes his life to their legendary ancestor. As the story goes: Morgan […]
Clemson University faculty members Thomas Britt, Ph.D., and Dev Arya, Ph.D., are the newest Clemson University School of Health Research (CUSHR) Faculty Fellows. Faculty Fellows are tenured faculty members embedded in a Greenville Health System department for the spring semester and summer to produce health-related research. Through this program, Faculty Fellows shift their focus from […]
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.
Trudy Mackay and Robert Anholt of Clemson University’s Center for Human Genetics have received $1.87 million from the National Institutes of Health to advance research aimed at significantly increasing our fundamental understanding of the complex roles molecular variations play in human disease.
CLEMSON, South Carolina – When John E. Fairey III retired in 1998 after 30 years at Clemson University, he left behind a legacy that still enriches the lives of everyone interested in the natural world. Professor Fairey was a native South Carolinian and a well-known – and much-loved – botanist who inspired generations of students […]
CLEMSON – Clemson University undergraduate sophomore Jordan Childs of biological sciences understands the importance of creating professional connections early in his education to help with his future career goals. At the fourth annual “Tigers on Call” event on Sept. 28, students like Childs who are interested in pursuing careers in healthcare had the opportunity to […]
CLEMSON – Carlos D. Garcia, a professor of analytical chemistry in the College of Science’s department of chemistry, has been named a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry – one of the highest recognitions for a chemist. The title recognizes Members of the Royal Society of Chemistry who have been in a senior position […]
Vincent Richards, an assistant professor of biology at Clemson University, has received an NIH grant to study the association between tooth decay and HIV infection in a population of children from Nigeria.
CLEMSON – Our first SCIENCE Homecoming Tailgate will begin three hours prior to kickoff of the Clemson vs. N.C. State game on Oct. 20. The tailgate will be held in the breezeway between Hunter Hall and Hunter Auditorium. To register, please CLICK HERE or on the image above.
As a reflection of its growing size and reputation, the Clemson University College of Science’s department of mathematical sciences has officially become the School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences effective Oct. 1.
CLEMSON – In a set of curriculum standards for a K-12 science classroom, teachers will find details about concepts to be taught and performance indicators to aim for. But they won’t find a breakdown describing how to navigate their students’ personal beliefs regarding contentious scientific topics such as climate change, evolution, or genetically modified organisms.
