Two teams of Clemson University undergraduates are creating devices that could smooth sharp edges on the outside of the International Space Station, making spacewalks safer for astronauts. The two Clemson teams were among 25 across the nation to advance to the testing phase in NASA’s Micro-g NExT program. Each will have a chance this spring […]
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 came in fourth among the nation’s 50 best value schools for biomedical engineering, according to a new ranking from bestvalueschools.com. The ranking included a variety of factors, including graduation rate, accreditation date, degree popularity, engineering popularity and net price. Martine LaBerge, chair of the Department of Bioengineering at Clemson, said the ranking underscores […]
Before bioengineering at Clemson, Julia Brisbane studied piano for 12 years at a magnet school for the arts in Charleston, South Carolina. Math and science classes were not her top priority then, but attending an EMAG!NE event changed everything. EMAG!NE — a program offered by the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences — inspires […]
Radiation often gets a bad rap, but bioengineer Delphine Dean is studying how low doses of radiation could be used to kill cancer cells without harming healthy cells. A recent study, published in PLOS ONE, describes how Dean’s team used a novel x-ray florescence irradiation system to help identify the right energy and dosage to use.
CLEMSON, South Carolina — Former Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson famously played in a 2014 game with a torn ACL. This season, he was burning up the NFL record book when the ACL in his other knee snapped, ending his season and breaking the hearts of tens of thousands of fans. The former Clemson University star […]
Staff members in the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences honored their colleagues and helped feed hungry students when they gathered Dec. 1 for an annual holiday luncheon in the Madren Conference Center. Awards went to outstanding classified employees for performance, achievements, or accomplishments that are exemplary and that contribute to the success of […]
Four students have started their senior year knowing they’ve been accepted to medical school. As juniors, Alison Sansone, Amanda Kington, Megan Hooks and Regan Van Metre applied and were accepted to the University of South Carolina (USC) School of Medicine Greenville through the CU/USCSOMG Early Assurance Program in its pilot year. The USC School of […]
The Clemson University Research Foundation (CURF) has announced eight researchers will receive fiscal year 2018 Technology Maturation Fund grants to support the last critical step in development needed to move new technologies to the marketplace.
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.
Sarah W. Harcum of Clemson University is leading a team that has received $6 million for research that could help lower the cost of several drugs that run into the thousands of dollars per treatment and fight some of the world’s most debilitating ailments.
CLEMSON, South Carolina — Three Clemson University College of Science researchers recently shared their areas of expertise with a group of 16 graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and faculty members from other universities in a training workshop. Dubbed “Camp Lasernode,” the June 12-16 workshop aimed to teach the attendees — some of whom came from outside […]
Lisa Benson of Clemson University is beginning to make plans for her five-year term as editor of the Journal of Engineering Education, the nation’s premier publication for research in the field.
Kate Gasparro said that when she thinks about her success, she goes back to the first conversation she had with fellow Clemson University alumnus Bob Hambright. Gasparro remembered she was applying for a leadership award that bears Hambright’s name when he impressed upon her the importance of self-examination, a lesson she took to heart. She went on to win the Norris Medal, the highest honor for an undergraduate at Clemson, and is now a Ph.D. student at Stanford University.
The award winners were: Molly Kennedy, Sez Atamturktur, Garrett Pataky, Amy Apon, Ronnie Chowdhury, John DesJardins and Simona Onori.
