Clemson University scientists have received a federal grant to evaluate the effectiveness of producing biofuels to mitigate climate change. Quantifying the net impact that growing biomass feedstock for biofuel has on local temperature and carbon sequestration can aid the development of effective land-use policies and is the key of a new research project led by Clemson University scientist Thomas O’Halloran.
A Clemson University researcher has determined a new management strategy for Southern blight – a serious disease that kills tomatoes and affects more than 1,200 plants.
Sarah W. Harcum of Clemson University is leading a team that has received $6 million for research that could help lower the cost of several drugs that run into the thousands of dollars per treatment and fight some of the world’s most debilitating ailments.
A survey in a leading national communication journal, Communication Education, recently recognized Joseph Mazer, associate professor and associate chair of Clemson’s communication department, as one of the most influential scholars in the field of instructional communication. The survey authors recognized Mazer as the fourth most influential scholar in the field based on contributions he has […]
