If she hadn't been injured in a naval accident, Melissa McCullough may never have found the purpose she has at Clemson University. McCullough is pursuing her Ph.D. in bioengineering under the guidance of Delphine Dean while teaching and working full-time as the bioinstrumentation lab manager.
A team of researchers from Clemson University and Prisma Health–Upstate are working to create a screening process to catch ovarian cancer in the early or pre-cancerous stages. Their goal is to make this screening as simple and easy for women as getting a pap smear. The idea is to identify the pre-cancerous changes through the makeup of the cervical mucus.
Their faces lit up the scoreboard, they patted Howard’s Rock and they celebrated by the end zone. Some of Clemson University’s top alumni gathered in Memorial Stadium on the night of April 25 for the annual showcase gala of the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences. Three of the college’s alumni were inducted into […]
Eight Clemson University faculty members have received grant funding from the newly formed South Carolina Center for Translational Research Improving Musculoskeletal Health (SC-TRIMH). Led by bioengineers at Clemson, SC-TRIMH combines orthopedics and other clinical expertise from Prisma Health–Upstate (formerly Greenville Health System) and the Medical University of South Carolina with computer scientists, computational engineers, biophysicists […]
Perhaps because of their years of service as faculty and staff senators, Danny Weathers and Janeen Putman, the newly elected presidents of the Faculty Senate and Staff Senate, provide the best examples of Gandhi’s view that the “best to way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” An associate professor […]
This Tiger is all about serving others. She spent decades giving service to Clemson as a student and an employee. During her term as Staff Senate president, she hopes to continue that tradition of service to her colleagues and bring recognition to the incredible things they do on behalf of Clemson. Meet Janeen Putman.
Some of the best and brightest students in the Clemson University College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences were lauded Thursday in an awards ceremony at the Madren Conference Center. Family, friends and faculty members clapped for students as they accepted Tiger paw-emblazoned plaques and then posed for photos with the college’s dean, Anand Gramopadhye. […]
A select group of Clemson University undergraduates have just returned from Louisville, Kentucky where they participated in a Meeting of the Minds with other Atlantic Coast Conference students.
A global leader in minimally invasive orthopedics, Arthrex already works with Clemson on a number of research projects. Now, it’s expanding its engagement with the university through a new, two-year pilot program developed with the needs of the surgical device industry in mind and a generous gift of ten $7,500 scholarships.
Dial Devaney said that he likes taking his hunting dog, Tex, with him on off-road trips but that she gets nervous if she has to wait in the Jeep when he finds a rock face to climb. Devaney looked for a portable invisible fence that would allow Tex to run around outside the Jeep but […]
CLEMSON, South Carolina – By loading a chelation drug into a nano-sized homing device, researchers at Clemson University have reversed in an animal model the deadliest effects of chronic kidney disease, which kills more people in the United States each year than breast or prostate cancer. When kidneys stop working properly, calcium builds up in […]
Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate love and romance, but the holiday has also become an opportunity to promote heart health, a tradition that continues as Clemson University bioengineers announce the launch of two separate research projects. Will Richardson and Naren Vyavahare said Thursday that they each have received grants from the National Institutes of Health for new research related to the heart. The two grants combined represent $4.1 million in new research funding in Clemson’s department of bioengineering.
New hope is brewing that Clemson University researchers could develop the first treatment to reverse the effects of a cardiovascular condition that affects millions of patients and can lead to complications ranging from hypertension to death. Naren Vyavahare, the Hunter Endowed Chair of Bioengineering, is receiving $2.2 million from the National Institutes of Health to […]
The millions of patients who suffer from a condition that contributes to heart failure could receive personalized risk assessments and treatments with the help of new research led by Will Richardson of Clemson University. Richardson, an assistant professor of bioengineering, is receiving $1.9 million from the National Institutes of Health for five years of research […]
About 150 engineers, medical doctors, students and health professionals gathered in Greenville on Feb. 22 for the Harriet and Jerry Dempsey Research Conference. The conference is part of a broader effort to conduct more high-profile medical research in South Carolina, a move that could mean better and lower-cost care for the state’s patients.
