CLEMSON – When she isn’t hiking, painting or serving in the Lutheran Campus Ministries at Clemson University, junior biochemistry major Katherine Floyd is toiling away in the lab. This summer, her hard work has paid off. Floyd recently received a fellowship from the American Society for Microbiology (ASM) that will fund 10-12 weeks of her […]
The pines and the climate are talking to each other on Hobcaw Barony, and Clemson University scientist Thomas O’Halloran is using a 120-foot tower to eavesdrop on their "conversations." Eddy covariance, or eddy flux, is an atmospheric measuring technique and statistical method used to determine exchange rates of trace gases over natural ecosystems — in this case, the longleaf pine forest at Clemson’s Belle W. Baruch Institute of Coastal Ecology and Forest Sciences.
The Office of the Dean of the College of Behavioral, Social and Health Sciences (CBSHS) recently announced the winning proposals for its second annual IMPACT seed grants program. The winning proposals cover a range of research topics including religious identification, improved health care outcomes in intensive care units and the effects of foot massage on […]
The largest study of bullying prevention efforts in U.S. schools has revealed significant, sustained positive impacts from the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program. Researchers at Clemson University and the University of Bergen in Norway evaluated nearly 70,000 students across 210 elementary, middle and high schools in Pennsylvania over two years. A companion analysis assessed year-to-year changes in a subset of 95 schools over three years. The research documented clear reductions in student reports of being bullied and bullying others. Overall, the results were stronger the longer the program was in place.
CLEMSON –A Clemson University professor’s article about research related to how wheat pollen reacts to heat stress has resulted in an article published in the scientific journal Plant, Cell and Environment. “This study provided us with important information that can be used for improving seed formation and developing heat-tolerant wheat varieties,” said Sruthi Narayanan of the […]
Researchers at Clemson University have uncovered a drug molecule that can alter the levels of bacteria present in the gut – specifically a strain that is linked to the onset of Type 1 diabetes in at-risk children.
Christopher Ray will become permanent director of Clemson’s Edisto Research and Education Center in Blackville. He has served as interim director since March. Ray is replacing the retiring John Mueller, who directed the Edisto REC for 10 years.
Thanks to a partnership with the U.S. Forest Service, Clemson undergraduates in the Fire Tigers program work alongside the U.S. Forest Service to safely and effectively manage local forests with prescribed burns.
