A pair of Clemson scientists has spent the past decade exploring the intricacies of the butterfly proboscis, one of nature’s most multifarious body parts. Their ever-increasing fount of knowledge is expected to eventually lead to manufactured devices that could revolutionize medical procedures and other yet-to-be-conceived applications.
A Clemson University professor who plays a key role in bringing together some of South Carolina’s leading minds for bioengineering research is the new Ernest R. Norville Endowed Chair in Biomedical Engineering. Hai Yao’s appointment comes as the result of a $1.5-million gift from Mitch and Carla Norville. Mitch Norville received a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Clemson in 1980, and the endowed chair is named after his father. Yao oversees the Clemson-MUSC Bioengineering Program as associate chair of the department of bioengineering.
Clemson University’s efforts to attract top talent and enhance diversity are paying off threefold, as the department of bioengineering prepares to welcome a new assistant professor to the faculty and two postdoctoral researchers remain on track to join next year.

A family with three generations of Clemson University alumni has given $1 million to the school to benefit engineering, arts and humanities, and the library, all integral parts of their collegiate experience,
Matt Doyle '16, a student from Connecticut, never dreamt of attending an out-of-state school. However, in 2012, Chuck '82 and Sue Fish made a commitment to establish an endowed fund, ultimately to provide engineering students from out-of-state with a great college experience. This commitment originated with the Chuck ’82 and Sue Fish Annual Engineering Scholarship, which they have been funding over a four-year period. Thanks to the couple's commitment, students like Matt Doyle can achieve goals they once thought weren’t possible.
An improvement for knee replacements, high-powered optical fibers and materials for more powerful batteries were among the 16 innovations Clemson University researchers received patents for in 2015.
