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.
The Clemson University Research Foundation (CURF) has announced seven researchers will receive Technology Maturation Fund grants to support the last critical step in technology development. The projects supported by this fund include prototype and minimal viable product development, bench-to-scale-up activities to generate material samples for application testing, beta field testing and pre-clinical studies.
A conference in Greenville on Feb. 22 will provide a behind-the-scenes look into the research that could soon transform health care, ranging from new ways to treat disease to better ways of working with patients. The 3rd Annual Harriet and Jerry Dempsey Research Conference runs from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and will be in […]
Clemson University bioengineers are launching a new research project to better understand cardiovascular disease in patients with diabetes, an affliction that affects about 13 percent of South Carolina adults and cost $4.3 billion last year alone. What the bioengineers learn could help lay the groundwork for future studies aimed at finding new treatments.
With an $11 million grant from the National Institutes of Health Center for Biomedical Research Excellence, Clemson University has launched the South Carolina Center for Translational Research Improving Musculoskeletal Health, or SC-TRIMH, a new research center that will bring together scientists from across South Carolina to change the way musculoskeletal disorders are diagnosed, treated and even studied.
Creating a community. That's how this Tiger describes his work in the Design and Entrepreneurship Network — or DEN. In the DEN, he works with students to make their ideas a reality. Meet John DesJardins.
Seven faculty members received awards and several others were recognized for tenure, promotions and other achievements at a Sept. 7 gala at the Owen Pavilion just off Lake Hartwell. The award winners were Kyle Brinkman, Ashley Childers, Brian Powell, Kevin Taaffe, Lawrence Fredendall, Joshua Summers and Delphine Dean. The awards ceremony is an annual event […]
Clemson University researchers said a new partnership with one of India’s top engineering universities will lead to new medical devices, sensors and startup companies while helping educate leaders and entrepreneurs for the global health care industry. Clemson is joining with the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi to create the Center for Innovative Medical Devices and Sensors.
Two teams of Clemson University bioengineering students each won $15,000 and two teams received honorable mentions in the 2018 Design by Biomedical Undergraduate Teams Challenge. The Voyager team took second place, and Concentracizor 4 (C4) won the challenge’s Venture Prize. Organic Medical and Supreme Endoscopy, both of Clemson, received honorable mentions. All teams were spotlighted […]
Clemson University served as a launching pad for Vanessa Ellerbe Wyche, whose barrier-breaking career has positioned her as the first African American to serve as deputy director of NASA’s Johnson Space Center. She is literally shooting for the moon and beyond in her new job, as NASA prepares to launch astronauts from Florida and for […]
Jonah Robison, a fifth-year senior at Clemson University, has been named a student member at-large for the board of directors for Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK), the nation’s most respected and effective leadership honor society. Robison, a native of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, is one of four students named to ODK’s National Advisory Council.
Clemson University’s National Merit Scholars will span from Clemson to Cleveland with some pursuing secondary degrees while others dive into the workforce.
Three Clemson students have received prestigious academic awards this year: the Fulbright Scholarship, the Boren Fellowship and the Boren Scholarship. These programs will give Sloan Nietert, Irene Cheng and Justin Giles the opportunity to study and live abroad and expand their academic excellence.
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.
Joshua Walters, who is pursuing a Ph.D. in bioengineering at Clemson University, recently learned his application to the South Carolina Space Grant Consortium has been selected for funding for a graduate assistantship in the amount of $12,000. The program awards assistantships for graduate study leading to research-based masters or doctoral degrees in the fields of […]
