If you’ve been to the doctor, you probably know what to do when you’re handed a plastic cup and shown to the bathroom. Most patients hand over the sample and give little thought to what happens when it’s shipped to the lab for analysis. Ken Marcus and his students are the exceptions. They have developed a new testing method that they believe will reduce costs, get faster results and lower the volume of urine needed for a sample.
As an undergraduate, Leah Kitashima witnessed a behavior that had become what she felt was far too prevalent among fellow students.
Clemson University is playing a lead role in a months-long effort to reintroduce an ancient breed of sugarcane to Sapelo Island, where the first successful commercial production of the towering grass took place in the United States.
Expect to be impressed when you meet a Marine, but when that Marine is a 95-year-old Pearl Harbor survivor who challenges you to a pull-up contest, prepare to be blown away. This is one of many things Clemson University student Will Hines of Spartanburg has learned in conducting the Veterans Project, an ongoing undergraduate research project to collect and preserve the personal accounts of American war veterans.
Hybrid car owners may take great mileage for granted, but the cars’ batteries eventually wear out and need to be replaced, usually at a cost of several thousand dollars. The research that Simona Onori does at Clemson University can help those batteries last longer and could help find new ways to reuse them once they retire from the road.
The Clemson University Arthropod Collection, a 90-year-old catalog of South Carolina’s biodiversity that holds approximately 1 million insect specimens, will be expanded and modernized thanks to a $505,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF).
The technical report of a new, major research study of dropout prevention strategies provides evidence of the effectiveness of these strategies in addition to presenting educators with valid scientific evidence that will enable them to select the best options for combating dropout problems in their schools and school districts.
Students at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research unveiled its newest concept vehicle, sponsored by General Motors, at the GM Renaissance Center in Detroit, Michigan.
In a groundbreaking achievement led by an international team that includes Clemson scientist Chris Saski, the intricately woven genetic makeup of Upland cotton has been decoded for the first time in the ancient plant’s history.
A small fish with a short lifespan might eventually have large and long-lived consequences for humankind thanks to an international collaboration between the Clemson University Genomics and Computational Biology Laboratory and the Leibniz Institute for Age Research.
Clemson broke ground for the Advanced Powertrain Testing Laboratory, a two-story 3,000-square-foot addition to the Carroll A. Campbell Jr. Graduate Engineering Center at Clemson University’s International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR).
Clemson University is leading a regional consortium of universities to help advance networking capabilities and expertise across the Southeast, beginning with an initial workshop being held this week in Atlanta, Georgia.
You’re going to have to think very small to understand something that has the potential to be very big. A team of researchers, including Kyle Brinkman of Clemson University, developed a material that acts as a superhighway for ions. The material could make batteries more powerful, change how gaseous fuel is turned into liquid fuel and help power plants burn coal and natural gas more efficiently.
Engineering courses challenge even the brightest students, but they don’t have to do it alone. Julie Martin is on a quest to figure out what resources students need to pick the right engineering major and stick with it until a degree is in hand. Her focus is on how students’ social connections to parents, teachers, university officials and others can help them succeed.
Clemson University has engaged the next step in its transformative research partnership with Greenville Health System with the appointment of its inaugural GHS Faculty Fellows.
