Renowned geneticist to become director of Clemson University's Center for Human Genetics.
Smart technology deserves smart packaging and a Clemson professor and an alumnus are combining forces to develop packaging so smart it can energize itself.
Fundamental research processes that once took days or weeks to perform will now be done in minutes or hours with new equipment at Clemson University that could accelerate the development of medicines, advanced materials and other technologies.
While cell phones, laptops and cars become more energy efficient, the development of one important ingredient common in all these devices, and many more, has lagged: the batteries used to power them. A Clemson team is working to make more efficient and cheaper batteries by replacing lithium with more plentiful aluminum.
Four days before the great American eclipse of 2017, a Clemson University scientist learned a secret that he had to hold until now. Albert Einstein predicted it. Now, astronomers say it is true. They confirmed the direct detection of gravitational waves or ripples in space time, in addition to light from the collision of two neutron stars.
Knowing there is growing need for affordable technology to detect and deter drones, the National Science Foundation has awarded Clemson and Duke universities with a $750,000, three-year grant to create a more economical solution for public spaces. The effectiveness of their designs will be tested at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park and Sarah P. Duke Gardens.
Physics and astronomy colleagues Terry Tritt and Jian He have surveyed the field of thermoelectric energy in an invited review for the journal Science.
A team of Clemson University astrophysicists has visually confirmed that a small rock found in Melanie Casselman’s yard is a meteorite from outer space.
South Carolina could soon see a return of the "Queen of Forages to supplement the "King of Forages," bermudagrass. The “queen” is alfalfa and Clemson researchers are working with South Carolina livestock producers to determine how to effectively incorporate alfalfa into forage crops, such as bermudagrass.
Clemson University scientists researching ways to reduce water pollution and protect a rare species of fish landed grants from the South Carolina Water Resources Center.
A $1-million upgrade to Clemson University’s acclaimed supercomputer, the Palmetto Cluster, is expected to help researchers quicken the pace of scientific discovery and technological innovation in a broad range of fields, from developing new medicines to creating advanced materials.
When disadvantaged youth engage in social activism, they tend to have high-status occupations in adulthood, according to Clemson University and University of Michigan researchers. The findings also suggest there’s a place for more discussion of social issues in our educational systems.
Heart-attack damage could be repaired with stem cells and tiny “nanowires” as part of a new research project that involves all three of South Carolina’s major research universities and is backed by $1.5 million from the National Institutes of Health. Ying Mei, an assistant professor of bioengineering at Clemson University, is leading the project.
In a new catalog, a team of Clemson physicists has documented exactly where the most extreme, violent sources of energy exist in the universe.
The enduring importance of nuclear energy in South Carolina is underscored by two new grants that together total more than $1 million and bring Clemson University’s five-year tally to $3.9 million under a federal program that supports university research in the field.
