CLEMSON – Clemson University’s Eukaryotic Pathogens Innovation Center (EPIC) celebrated its five-year anniversary Wednesday with a spirited discussion about the College of Science center’s latest explorations into biomedical research. Then came the cutting of the cake – and the fun continued. A special guest joined the crowd to express his thanks for everything EPIC has […]
CLEMSON, South Carolina – The 5th Annual Cell Biology of Eukaryotic Pathogens (CBEP) meeting was held on Oct. 19-20 at the Clemson Outdoor Lab, bringing together some of the best parasitic and fungal disease researchers in North America for coffee and collaboration. Hosted by Clemson University’s Eukaryotic Pathogens Innovation Center (EPIC), the meeting is held […]
CLEMSON, South Carolina – The stepping stones of scientific advancement rely on the identification of genes involved in cytokinesis, the processivity of dynein motor proteins, the construction of neural circuits – or some other equally-obscure-sounding research – because these are the studies that lay the groundwork for the development of cures or novel disease treatments […]
Research conducted by Zhicheng Dou, an assistant professor of biological sciences in the College of Science, was featured in the June 2017 issue of Nature Microbiology. The findings, concerning the parasitic disease toxoplasmosis, suggest that the parasite’s “stomach” is a key target for drug development.
CLEMSON – Scientists from around the nation joined forces with Clemson University researchers at a dynamic and multifaceted workshop titled “The Future of Integrative Structural Biology” on April 29 at the Watt Family Innovation Center. The daylong event served as a platform to discuss integrative methods in the field of structural biology, a powerful tool […]
CLEMSON – Meredith Morris, Jim Morris, Feng Ding and Amy Pope are the 2017 winners of College of Science faculty awards of excellence. Each will be recognized at the COS full faculty meeting Wednesday in the Daniel Hall auditorium. Meredith Morris won the 2017 COS Award for Teaching Excellence. She came to Clemson more than […]
Clemson University's Caitlin Seluzicki and Jessica Zielinski are winners of the 2017 Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship. Bridget Luckie earns honorable mention.
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 […]
The gridiron history between Clemson and Ohio State is sometimes overshadowed by their collaborations in research. Just as athletes seek equally-matched, or superior, opponents, researchers seek collaborators who complement and challenge their work.
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.
Diana Nguyen, Clemson University senior biochemistry major from Greenville, received a $20,000 scholarship and a one-year paid post-graduate research position from the National Institutes of Health Undergraduate Scholarship Program.
Kirin Khan of Central, a graduate of Clemson University’s biochemistry and genetics programs, has been awarded the 2016 Marcus L. Urann Fellowship by Phi Kappi Phi, the nation’s oldest and most selective collegiate honor society.
Clemson University scientist Cheryl Ingram-Smith has been awarded a three-year, $424,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to study the inner workings of a parasite that causes 50 million cases of amoebic dysentery each year and kills 50,000 to 100,000.
Holding a brain during an autopsy or creating a full knee replacement is usually left to the professionals, but Stephen Patrick got to experience all of this and more as a Clemson student.
