CLEMSON – Twenty years ago, Terry Tritt taught his first class as a Clemson faculty member. It was a general physics course, packed with hundreds of undergraduate science and engineering students – and when Tritt cracked a joke, his audience wasn’t moved. “Everybody was looking at me real seriously. Nobody was smiling. And I thought: […]
CLEMSON, South Carolina – In August, a study conducted by physics and astronomy professors Chad Sosolik and Joan Marler was highlighted in the American Institute of Physics’ publication, titled “Scilight.” Featuring the most exciting research in physical science from associated AIP Publishing Journals, Scilight is published on a weekly basis for a far-reaching scientific audience. […]
While most people's jobs require that they look down or forward, this Tiger looks up. In fact, she's been looking up for the past two years to study this week's total solar eclipse, which grabbed the attention of a nation - and the world.
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.
Scientific methods and computer software that have helped thousands of scientists better understand how molecules interact in the body will soon be further developed to enable modeling of large macromolecular machineries, neurons and various other phenomena in the living cell and tissues, including processes associated with tumors.
Eight faculty members in the College of Engineering and Science received awards on May 4 at a dinner held in their honor and attended by their families, colleagues and top college officials. The honorees were Thompson Mefford, Steve Stuart, Joe Kolis, Scott Husson, Tim DeVol, Naren Vyavahare, Robert Riggs and Mary Beth Kurz. The college […]
Emily Thompson's sensible flats are firmly planted on terra firma. She'll graduate in May as one of Clemson's most-decorated physics undergraduates ever, racking up honors from a Goldwater Fellowship to an Astronaut Scholarship and "every award available to her at Clemson," according to Mark Leising, the interim dean of the new College of Science.
A Clemson University researcher is using a high-profile funding award to better understand tiny particles that have improved everyday products and shown promise for engineering better medicines but have also raised concerns about environmental and biological safety. Feng Ding, an assistant professor of physics, is furthering his research into nanoparticles with a $506,569 award from […]
Drought and population booms have a growing number of communities taking a closer look at building desalination plants, but turning saltwater to freshwater is more expensive than many would like. Many researchers believe the magic bullet that lowers costs will be a high-strength membrane that can withstand the intense water pressure needed to desalinate water. […]
An international team of scientists led by a Clemson University astrophysicist has discovered new evidence that planets are forming around a star about 335 light years from Earth.
