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.
Vertebrate life evolved from sea to land when it crawled ashore some 350 million years ago spawning the vast diversity of walking, land-dwelling, air-breathing creatures. That transition has led scientists to study how ancient fish used their fins as crutches to hoist themselves ashore. However, new evidence suggests that life could have moved forward with the help of what was behind it: a tail.
Scientific methods and computer software that have helped thousands of scientists better understand how molecules interact in the body will soon be further developed to enable modeling of large macromolecular machineries, neurons and various other phenomena in the living cell and tissues, including processes associated with tumors.
Clemson University scientist Cheryl Ingram-Smith has been awarded a three-year, $424,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to study the inner workings of a parasite that causes 50 million cases of amoebic dysentery each year and kills 50,000 to 100,000.
Holding a brain during an autopsy or creating a full knee replacement is usually left to the professionals, but Stephen Patrick got to experience all of this and more as a Clemson student.
CLEMSON — Two finalists have been named for an associate dean position in Clemson’s Graduate School. They are Stephen E. Creager, professor of chemistry at Clemson, and David S. Fleming, associate professor and graduate program director at Clemson’s Eugene T. Moore School of Education. There will be an open campus forum with each candidate. Creager’s will […]
Clemson University research scientist Zhicheng Dou has received a $64,786 grant from the Knights Templar Eye Foundation to study a microscopic parasite that can cause blindness, birth defects and other severe health consequences.
