CLEMSON — Luiz Jacobsohn of Clemson University said that his research into “electronic traps” could mean that patients would be exposed to less radiation when they go to the doctor for certain tests and treatments. Jacobsohn, an assistant professor of materials science and engineering, is doing his research as part of a $546,243 award he has […]
Todd Anderson, an assistant professor of art at Clemson University, is a printmaker, skilled at transferring beauty and wonder from landscapes onto paper to share his experiences with the public. “I think we all understand that the world is changing in sweeping and dramatic ways,” Anderson says, his voice quiet and earnest. “My belief is that those places need to be seen, they need to be experienced and they need to be creatively documented.” Since its founding 100 years ago, Glacier National Park has lost more than 80 percent of its glaciers. Over the past six years, Anderson says, he hiked more than 500 miles through that park for a project called “The Last Glacier.” The art has been acquired by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the New York Public Library, the Library of Congress and other libraries and personal collectors.
Clemson University geneticist Ksenija Gasic seeks to do the unimaginable: improve the taste, aroma and nutritional value of the beloved peach. Gasic received a $150,000, three-year grant from the United States-Israel Binational Agricultural Research and Development Fund (BARD) to study a method of increasing the chemical compounds in peaches that impact flavor and aroma.
Proponents of transcendental meditation (TM) have touted its positive effects on high blood pressure since the 1990s and, until recently, evidence related to similar effects from mindfulness training and other forms of non-transcendental meditation has not been systematically reviewed and summarized. However, recent research from Clemson University faculty published in the Journal of Hypertension suggests […]
South Carolina is known more for peaches than oranges when it comes to fruit, but researchers in the state could play a key role in saving the nation’s citrus industry from an insect-borne disease that has devastated crops in Florida and threatens other states from California to Texas.
With key support from the Walmart Foundation and its U.S. Manufacturing Innovation Fund, Clemson University textile experts are working with the world’s most widely used fiber, polyester, to develop technologies that will make dyeing it more economical and environmentally friendly.
The Walmart Foundation and the U.S. Conference of Mayors announced Clemson University as one of this year’s U.S. Manufacturing Innovation Fund grant recipients for the school’s sustainable water and oil repellency fabric technology. Clemson University will receive more than $420,000 from the Walmart Foundation.
