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.
Scientists thought turtle hips were fused and immobile, until new technology let Clemson biologists see through their shells.
Current models used to predict the survival of species in a warming world might be off target, according to new research that enlisted the help of dozens of spiny lizards in the New Mexico desert.
Clemson University scientist William “Bill” Baldwin recently received a three-year, $362,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health to continue studies on how exposure to chemicals is likely to inhibit our bodies’ internal mechanisms, which could increase the risk and severity of obesity in millions of people in the United States and billions worldwide.
Clemson University’s Institute of Translational Genomics will soon expand its reach with the addition of a three-year fellowship program designed to recruit and develop future leaders in the burgeoning field of agriculturally oriented computational science.
Millions of acres of magnificent longleaf pine forests that were nearly annihilated a century ago are making a slow yet promising comeback, thanks in part to a team of Clemson University researchers and their collaborators.
Clemson University incoming freshman Riley Nordin of Saluda has won the 2016 National Wild Turkey Federation National Scholarship. The $10,000 scholarship, sponsored by Mossy Oak, will go toward Nordin’s education in genetics with a focus on plant research in the fall.
Vertebrate life evolved from sea to land when it crawled ashore some 350 million years ago spawning the vast diversity of walking, land-dwelling, air-breathing creatures. That transition has led scientists to study how ancient fish used their fins as crutches to hoist themselves ashore. However, new evidence suggests that life could have moved forward with the help of what was behind it: a tail.
Clemson University research scientist Zhicheng Dou has received a $64,786 grant from the Knights Templar Eye Foundation to study a microscopic parasite that can cause blindness, birth defects and other severe health consequences.
One of the most effective methods for capturing carbon from the atmosphere in the tropics of Latin America -- allowing secondary forests to regenerate on their own -- is overlooked by global climate change policies. Scientists explain how these forests quickly become substantial, important players in the fight to slow climate change.
