Imagine you're on your way to Mars and a crucial tool floats away to outer space during a spacewalk. Not to worry, you'll simply re-enter your spacecraft and use microorganisms to convert your urine and exhaled carbon dioxide into chemicals to make a new one. That's one of the ultimate goals of scientists who are developing ways to make long space trips feasible.
For the second year in a row, seven Clemson researchers received CAREER awards from the National Science Foundation. They will tackle issues from creating realistic hand and finger movements for virtual reality to redesigning the way clinical trials are carried out.
Researchers at Clemson University are hoping to learn more by using state-of-the-art molecular modeling and computer science techniques. Their efforts could help develop new ways of preserving food, studying climate, cryopreserving organs and protecting crops.
Research aimed at creating a new biosensor that would help military investigators search for signs of nuclear activities, including weapons development, is moving forward under the leadership of a former naval officer who now is a Clemson University faculty member.
Few Clemson University alumni illustrate the global impact engineers have on the world as well as Suzanne Roat. She also happens to be a shining example of how a successful alumnus can make a positive impact on her alma mater and future engineers. Her 26-year career as a chemical engineer working with oil refinery processes […]
Two Clemson University graduate students and a post-doctoral fellow captured one-half of the poster awards presented at the 2016 Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) Basic Research Technical Review held in July near Washington, DC. In total, 66 posters were presented, representing approximately 25 universities and research organizations. Clemson winners were graduate students Edward Hoegg (“Isotope Ratio […]
A sensor in development at Clemson University could help search for some of the globe’s most potentially destructive weapons to keep them out of the hands of terrorists and rogue nations.
CLEMSON — Amod Ogale of Clemson University has received $2 million and will work with a group of researchers across the country to lower the cost of high-tech materials that have helped make airplanes and luxury cars more fuel efficient but remain too expensive for price-sensitive products. Ogale, the director of the Center for Advanced Engineering […]

Clemson’s 3-Minute Thesis competition and Graduate Research and Discovery Symposium (GRADS) were held last week as part of Research and Innovation Month. More than 25 graduate students were recognized with cash prizes for their top-ranking presentations. Photos are online. The annual 3-Minute Thesis competition challenges graduate students to deliver compelling presentations on their thesis and […]
Several exceptional students from the College of Engineering and Science were honored in April at the annual Honors and Awards ceremony in the Madren Conference Center ballroom. The awards were aimed at honoring the college’s best and brightest students. Many are engaged in service projects that are improving the quality of life not only for […]
Seven Clemson University students have received Graduate Research Fellowships from the National Science Foundation, and five others received honorable mention awards in the national competition.
Clemson University will soon have a new piece of lab equipment that can sort through billions of cells in a matter of hours and will speed up research for a host of faculty members across campus. Mark Blenner, an assistant professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering, has received word that the Department of Defense will […]
Four Clemson University engineering students have been named University Innovation Fellows by the National Center for Engineering Pathways to Innovation. The fellows are: Alex Bina, a bioengineering Ph.D. student from Overland Park, Kansas; Kaitlyn Hackathorn, a senior bioengineering major from Mount Pleasant; Bailey-Jean Walker, a senior bioengineering major from Summerville; and Jessica Zahn, a sophomore […]
Five Clemson University researchers have brought home some of the nation’s top awards for junior faculty members and are helping make robots fly, develop new medicines, save buildings from the wrecking ball and create new ways to make fertilizer.
