South Carolina’s position as a national leader in advanced materials just got a giant boost. A team of researchers from 10 universities across the state has received a $20 million, five-year grant from the National Science Foundation’s Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) to establish a new initiative: Materials Assembly and Design Excellence in South Carolina, or MADE in SC.
In a collaboration with the Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL), Clemson University professor Stephen Creager is pursuing basic research that could aid in the disposal or repurposing of radioactive hydrogen isotopes.
When Mate Adamkovics’ astronomy and physics students go on to brilliant careers, they can attribute at least part of their professional knowledge to a beautiful workhorse of a 20th Century spaceship called Cassini. After a 20-year mission spent studying Saturn and its moons, Cassini’s mission ended at 7:55 a.m. Friday.
In a nondescript industrial steel building not far from Clemson University's main campus, civil engineers fire two-by-four lumber out of an air cannon and test model buildings in a 50-mph wind tunnel to study the damaging effects of high-speed winds, like those created by tornadoes and by hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
The Greenville Health Authority board (GHA) has awarded Clemson University a total of $2.66 million for diabetes prevention efforts and scholarships to increase diversity in the nurse practitioner workforce.
About two miles from the Clemson University campus, where 50,000 people gathered to gaze skyward during the Aug. 21 total solar eclipse, bee researcher Jennifer Tsuruda kept her eyes focused earthward to see how honey bees behaved when nighttime darkness momentarily interrupted afternoon sun.
Clemson University has taken another significant step in its growth as a leading national research university by creating the Office of Research Development in the Division of Research. The goals of the new office are to increase the number of large, multi-department, multi-institutional grants valued at $2 million and more and to help faculty attain select research development activities, such as federal CAREER awards.
Clemson University is part of a team that is receiving $10 million from the National Science Foundation to help build what experts call a “cloud computing system,” bringing the total funding to $20 million since 2014.
In the rush to be close to nature or create economic growth, how structural changes impact the coastal environment is often lost.
While tens of thousands were experiencing the Aug. 21 total solar eclipse on the expansive grounds of Clemson University, professor Sean Brittain and several students from the department of physics and astronomy were collecting scientific data on the roof of the Watt Family Innovation Center.
Mining nearly two centuries of data, a Clemson University political scientist hopes to help policymakers and scholars better understand and predict causes of international conflict.
Imagine you're on your way to Mars and a crucial tool floats away to outer space during a spacewalk. Not to worry, you'll simply re-enter your spacecraft and use microorganisms to convert your urine and exhaled carbon dioxide into chemicals to make a new one. That's one of the ultimate goals of scientists who are developing ways to make long space trips feasible.
Researchers will be at Clemson University Monday to find out how the solar eclipse might interfere with GPS capabilities.
A team of researchers from Clemson University, Columbia University Journalism School and the University of Washington has discovered a security success in an unlikely place: the “Panama Papers.”
Clemson University researchers say the public can help collect scientific information about the effect of Monday's eclipse on plants for future generations.
