Here's what you need to know to see the Aug. 21 total solar eclipse at Clemson University's “Eclipse Over Clemson” viewing party.
With patches of exposed skin, large lesions across her face and dull, expressionless eyes, you might think Lorelei, a Shetland sheepdog, has been abused. But that would be far from the truth: Lorelei is loved and well cared-for. She suffers from a painful condition called dermatomyositis, a genetic skin disorder that affects dogs and humans. The discovery, by Leigh Anne Clark, an associate professor of genetics at Clemson University, and her colleagues, could improve the future for dogs with dermatomyositis.
A research team from Clemson’s parks, recreation and tourism management department proved crucial to the city of Pickens' effort to get funds to improve and extend its multi-use Doodle Trail.
Research conducted by Zhicheng Dou, an assistant professor of biological sciences in the College of Science, was featured in the June 2017 issue of Nature Microbiology. The findings, concerning the parasitic disease toxoplasmosis, suggest that the parasite’s “stomach” is a key target for drug development.
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.
