A team of Clemson University scientists recently conducted an onsite visit with representatives of the U.S. National Whitewater Center to discuss potential tactics to improve and maintain the water quality of the outdoor facility’s manmade whitewater river.
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.
A Clemson psychology professor has published research revealing a positive link between mood, motivation and physical activity during work and study.
A sensor in development at Clemson University could help search for some of the globe’s most potentially destructive weapons to keep them out of the hands of terrorists and rogue nations.
If you know of a workplace supervisor who yells, insults or is generally abusive to employees, chances are they were treated similarly as a child, according to research by business school professors at Clemson University.
Two Clemson professors have won a national award for an innovative natural product they have created that can extend the shelf life of pet food.
Clemson University scientists Paul Leonard and Rob Baldwin are part of a collaborative study on how rising sea levels and increased urbanization — both now and in the future — are joining forces to fragment habitat connectivity across the region. Leonard, Baldwin and four other co-authors contributed to the paper, “Landscape Connectivity Losses Due to Sea Level Rise and Land Use Change,” about wildlife habitat connectivity in the Southeast that has been published in the journal Animal Conservation.
The first step of an ongoing-process designed to bring a valuable heirloom wheat back from the brink of extinction has been completed with flying colors.
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.
Like many of their American counterparts, Russian citizens also hide their earnings to avoid the tax man, according to research conducted by a Clemson University economist. That research recently received national recognition by a Russian consortium of highly regarded public policy and economics organizations.
