Jupiter's atmosphere might contain a lot of water, according to recent research by a national team of scientists that includes Clemson University's Máté Ádámkovics.
Samantha Price, an assistant professor of biological sciences at Clemson University, is recording the shapes and sizes of the fishes at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History as part of her research aimed at understanding the factors that control body-shape diversity.
This spring, Clemson University scientist Shari Rodriguez and graduate student Diane Dotson traveled to Kanha Tiger Reserve in northern India to study the impacts of human-predator conflicts on the wellbeing of Indian people living in and around the park.
Annoyed by that crack on your phone’s screen? You wouldn’t be if the screen could heal itself, like a body heals a cut. That day is coming. Research and development in this area is so popular now that today’s advice to Benjamin Braddock would be two words: self-healing plastics.
Darren Linvill has earned an unusual moniker over the last eight months. He’s spent so much time studying the habits of those that would abuse Twitter to subvert political discourse, his colleagues in Clemson’s communication department now call him “the troll whisperer.” Linvill and College of Business faculty member Patrick Warren have spent months studying […]
The plethora of salamanders living in the southern Appalachian Mountains might be in less danger from the effects of global warming than previously believed, according to new research published Wednesday in Science Advances.
Deaths that have been tied to social media challenges are capturing the attention of Clemson University researchers who want to begin developing new ways of protecting adolescents and young adults from harming themselves.
Researchers at Clemson University have uncovered a drug molecule that can alter the levels of bacteria present in the gut – specifically a strain that is linked to the onset of Type 1 diabetes in at-risk children.
When a celebrity like Kate Spade or Anthony Bourdain dies from suicide there’s often a call for more research. But what does that research look like? Suicide, the 10th leading cause of death in the United States, is difficult to study. Unlike the first nine causes, it doesn’t fit neatly into a single disease category, like heart disease (No.1), cancer (No. 2) or diabetes (No. 7).
New research from forensic anthropologists suggests that the structure of the human skull can help identify a person who has died attempting to cross into the United States from Mexico. After examining what little is often left of these individuals, researchers say medical examiners can use a skull’s symmetry to define their likely origin and increase the odds that they will be identified.
Joshua Bostwick of Clemson University is launching a new research project that could lead to improved drug delivery techniques and is made possible by one of the nation’s most prestigious awards for junior faculty members. Bostwick, an assistant professor of mechanical engineering, is receiving a $500,000 CAREER award from the National Science Foundation.
By juxtaposing contrasting properties of two different nanomaterials, a team of Clemson University physicists has developed an optical diode that enables light to move in one direction. The development overcomes an obstacle in the quest for better optical isolators for high-energy lasers and optical computers capable of processing data at the speed of light.
New treatments for potentially fatal heart conditions could be ready for patients more quickly and less expensively with the help of a new research project led by Ethan Kung, an assistant professor of mechanical engineering at Clemson University.
MHI Vestas recently was awarded the Silver Medal in the category of renewable energy at the prestigious Edison Awards for its 9.5 megawatt offshore wind turbine, which it will test at Clemson University’s wind turbine-testing facility at the SCE&G Energy Innovation Center in the former naval shipyard.
A study out of Clemson University’s department of biological sciences has identified tiny particles in the brain that regulate the neuroimmune system, a result that might one day be used in treating traumatic brain injuries or viral infections of the brain.
