For the second year in a row, seven Clemson researchers received CAREER awards from the National Science Foundation. They will tackle issues from creating realistic hand and finger movements for virtual reality to redesigning the way clinical trials are carried out.
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.
The rebels and the empire used laser cannons to shoot it out on the big screen in “Star Wars,” but the weapons could soon move to the real battlefield with the help of two Clemson University engineers who are receiving a combined $3.2 million from the Department of Defense.
As the rate of Lyme disease grows rapidly across the United States, new research offers veterinarians a forecasting map that tells them which parts of the country are most at risk of Lyme disease infections in dogs, which could also help track and predict Lyme disease in people.
Research by wildlife biologists from Clemson University and the Tom Yawkey Wildlife Center near Georgetown is shattering conventional scientific understanding about American alligator growth and reproduction.
An innovative series of pre-exam study sessions provocatively titled “Calculus Fight Club” has helped lift the department of mathematical sciences to new heights.
New insights into the impact forests have on surface temperature will provide a valuable tool in efforts to mitigate climate change, according to a new research paper co-authored by Clemson University scientist Thomas O’Halloran. For the first time, scientists have created a global map measuring the cooling effect forests generate by regulating the exchange of water and energy between the Earth’s surface and the atmosphere.
High-performing college students interested in health-related professions soon will be able to apply for graduate school through two innovative initiatives offered by Clemson University and the Medical University of South Carolina. Starting in fall 2017, the collaboration will reduce student debt and increase the number of highly skilled, highly trained professionals entering South Carolina’s workforce.
A Clemson University researcher is letting her fingers do the talking with a new project that could lead to more realistic hand movements for animated movies, video games and a range of virtual reality simulations.
Clemson University has launched a new “Eclipse Over Clemson” web page and blog devoted to the Aug. 21 solar eclipse.
The US Play Coalition’s 2017 Conference on the Value of Play: Where Design Meets Play will take place April 2-5 at Clemson University’s Madren Center. This year’s conference will focus on the many facets of play just as it has in recent years, but there will be a special emphasis on the design of areas that facilitate it.
Retired U.S. Army Col. Ben Skardon, a Clemson University alumnus, emeritus professor and survivor of the Bataan Death March during World War II, will walk Sunday in the Bataan Memorial Death March in New Mexico. It will be his 10th time in the march and just four months short of his 100th birthday. The start of the annual Bataan Memorial Death March is a raucous affair. The sound of cannon fire sends 7,000 hard-charging and motivated athletes surging across the starting line into the New Mexican desert under a vibrant orange and violet sunrise. They whoop and cheer as they embark on one of the most legendarily grueling sporting events in America.
The big dance has begun! You can bet this year’s NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament will have Cinderella stories and bracket busters. It’s not called March Madness for nothing. From a field of 68 teams, only four will make it to the Final Four and only one will be crowned the champion. But that doesn’t make the 67 other teams losers. The real winners will be the players who look beyond the final score.
A Clemson researcher is testing an intelligent traffic controller system that communicates with cars and may mean you would never have to stop at red lights again.
