Research from more than 100 scientists across the world, including that of Clemson professor of biological sciences Saara DeWalt, has recently combined to show that the world's tropical forests are more similar than scientists previously thought.
South Carolina cotton farmers have a new tool to use in their fight against thrips.
Renowned chemist Robert H. Grubbs, who won a Nobel prize for unlocking the door for new customizable polymers and other advanced materials, will speak at Clemson University April 11.
A team of scientists from Clemson University and Cornell University is developing the first set of computational techniques that can predict how DNA mutations affect proteins and protein-to-protein interactions, which are vital in determining how the body’s tissues and organs function. Their study also holds the potential to accelerate the synthesis of new drug treatments for a variety of genetic disorders.
Rhondda Robinson Thomas, associate professor of English at Clemson University, has received a $50,000 Whiting Public Engagement Fellowship. Thomas will use the award to broadly share the university’s history through a museum exhibition called “Black Clemson: From Enslavement to Integration,” which will travel to 10 sites across South Carolina over two years.
Through a National Fish and Wildlife Foundation grant, Clemson University scientist Cathy Jachowski is working to identify habitat requirements to inform restoration and species recovery for the Carolina heelsplitter, the only federally endangered mussel species in South Carolina.
Vaidehi Paliya, a postdoctoral researcher in physics and astronomy, recently discovered seven galaxies that could potentially shake up what astrophysicists thought they knew about how the size of a galaxy – and the black hole at its center – can affect its behavior.
Clemson faculty examines the stress and anxiety caused by the media attention around mass shootings and gun control, and how people inundated with it can contend with its effects.
Clemson University has reappointed Tanju Karanfil vice president for research as it looks to build upon the momentum of its recent research growth.
A team of Clemson University bioengineering and physics students and faculty described an irradiation fluorescence system they developed that could accelerate research in delivering very specific types of radiation in controlled doses. They also showed that low doses of specific, controlled radiation are safe for healthy cells.
The sign on the wall behind Suyi Li’s desk at Clemson University has a picture of a paper swan and a quick dash of motivation, “Keep calm and origami on.” The ancient art of paper folding is showing promise for new technology that ranges from cancer-fighting drugs to foldable armor for police officers, and Li is hoping to take the practice to the next level in a new research project.
Automotive researchers, students and manufacturers will work side by side developing and learning advanced manufacturing techniques at the new Clemson Vehicle Assembly Center that was unveiled Thursday in Greenville. Part of the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR) and located in the Greenville Technical College Center for Manufacturing Innovation, the real-world research space will provide innovative manufacturing solutions and highly trained engineers and technicians for industry.
When Leland Dunwoodie, an undergraduate biochemistry student at Clemson University, approached his professor about wanting to start research on “some human stuff” in the spring of 2016, he didn’t imagine it would lead to the discovery of 22 genes that are implicated in glioblastoma, the most aggressive type of brain cancer.
Clemson University is hosting a free showing of the Netflix documentary film “Chasing Coral,” which features divers, photographers and scientists seeking to unravel the mysteries of why coral reefs are in dramatic decline throughout the world.
Clemson University researchers are working to develop packages that would use communication between cells to detect food that's beginning to spoil.
