A Clemson University research scientist has obtained a patent for a way to make organic fertilizer that could revolutionize the organic produce industry and put it on a level playing field with conventional crops.
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.
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.
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.
Clemson University researchers are working to develop packages that would use communication between cells to detect food that's beginning to spoil.
A higher minimum wage and earned income tax credits (EITCs) can mean the difference between a return to prison for recently released convicts or making a living outside of crime, according to research by a Clemson University economics professor.
Researchers at the Clemson Nanomaterials Institute have developed a wireless energy source that generates electricity from simple mechanical motion, such as the waves in the ocean, the tap of a foot or the clap of a hand.
New research from a Clemson University researcher examining the role of teacher expectations in the classroom confirms that the effects of teacher expectations on student achievement in math not only exist, but grow stronger over time and vary by students’ gender and race.
A joint research team including faculty from Clemson and MUSC unveiled a high-fidelity, mockup operating room at the Clemson Design Center in Charleston today. The OR prototype is based on three years’ worth of research of past literature on OR functionality; observation of best practices in updated, modernized ORs; and input from nurses, doctors and anesthesiologists on how the new OR should function.
Director of Clemson’s Institute for Parks Bob Powell, psychology graduate student Drew Morris and Clemson psychology professor June Pilcher recently joined forces to study how the cold affects an individual mentally.
