Now in its fifth year, Clemson University’s What’s in Our Waters (WOW) project continues to promote local conservation through citizen science.
Lisa Bain, who specializes in toxicology in the College of Science’s department of biological sciences, was recently awarded a $367K grant from the National Institutes of Health to probe how arsenic exposure affects the process by which cells change during development.
Award-winning journalist and media specialist Jim Melvin named director of public communications and marketing for Clemson University’s College of Science.
CLEMSON – Since its inception four years ago, Clemson University’s Eukaryotic Pathogens Innovation Center has grown larger and bolder in leaps and bounds. So … why not throw a party! Faculty, staff and student researchers did just that on Jan. 31, gathering in a long hallway inside the university’s futuristic Life Sciences Facility to celebrate […]
Clemson University geneticist Ksenija Gasic seeks to do the unimaginable: improve the taste, aroma and nutritional value of the beloved peach. Gasic received a $150,000, three-year grant from the United States-Israel Binational Agricultural Research and Development Fund (BARD) to study a method of increasing the chemical compounds in peaches that impact flavor and aroma.
The Duke Energy Foundation has continued its sponsorship of a Clemson University graduate-level course that provides K-12 teachers in South Carolina the opportunity to explore the interrelationships of energy production, water and the environment. The summer course is taught at Duke Energy’s Bad Creek Outdoor Classroom.
A Clemson researcher is embarking on a mission to help fight the most prevalent chronic disease plaguing Americans today. The disease is tooth decay and Vincent Richards, an assistant professor in the university’s biology department, is working with researchers from the University of Florida to determine which bacteria can help promote oral health.
Clemson University professor James Morris received a $184,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health to research a new method of starving the deadly parasites that threaten millions of people worldwide. If successful, the work could lead to the development of oral treatments for African sleeping sickness, Chagas disease and Baghdad boil, an infection that has afflicted U.S. troops in the Middle East.
Scientists converged at Clemson University this month to share research aimed at treating diseases responsible for millions of deaths around the world.
NASA says it will find life on other planets within the next 20 years. Clemson's Kelly Smith asks what Earthlings' moral and ethical responsibilities are.
The Clemson family has gained a new namesake: Legionella clemsonensis, a novel strain of the Legionella bacteria, the most common cause of waterborne bacterial outbreaks in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) gave the honor of naming L. clemsonensis to students in a collaborative research group called CU and the CDC, which includes students from Clemson’s Creative Inquiry (CI) program for undergraduate students and officials in the CDC Legionella lab.
Zakiyah Henry, a sophomore biology major at Winston-Salem State University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, used to think a biology degree led only to medical school. But this past summer she spent 10 weeks at Clemson University with the Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program.
Clemson researcher Andrew S. Mount has been selected as a 2016 TechConnect Innovation awardee.
Clemson students played only a small part in the lives of the seven tigers we saw — but the tigers (and their breathtaking homeland) have had an irrevocable impact on mine. I hope that every student has the opportunity to experience a similar shift in perspective — one that, I believe, can only be gained through cultural immersion and global learning.
Clemson University scientist David Feliciano recently received a three-year, $442,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health to study how alterations to a complex pathway in the developing brain cause a constellation of neurological disorders.
