Vaidehi Paliya, a postdoctoral researcher in physics and astronomy, recently discovered seven galaxies that could potentially shake up what astrophysicists thought they knew about how the size of a galaxy – and the black hole at its center – can affect its behavior.
Clemson faculty examines the stress and anxiety caused by the media attention around mass shootings and gun control, and how people inundated with it can contend with its effects.
Water is a driving force behind virtually every facet of life in South Carolina — from agriculture, recreation and tourism to essential needs like food and drink. But water is both among the Palmetto State’s greatest assets and biggest challenges. A December 2016 study by Clemson University professors found natural resource-based sectors contribute $33.4 billion […]

Clemson University has reappointed Tanju Karanfil vice president for research as it looks to build upon the momentum of its recent research growth.
A team of Clemson University bioengineering and physics students and faculty described an irradiation fluorescence system they developed that could accelerate research in delivering very specific types of radiation in controlled doses. They also showed that low doses of specific, controlled radiation are safe for healthy cells.
The sign on the wall behind Suyi Li’s desk at Clemson University has a picture of a paper swan and a quick dash of motivation, “Keep calm and origami on.” The ancient art of paper folding is showing promise for new technology that ranges from cancer-fighting drugs to foldable armor for police officers, and Li is hoping to take the practice to the next level in a new research project.
Skye Arthur-Banning can trace a watershed moment in his career as faculty member and soccer referee to a set of shoe laces. They were on a pair of cleats that belonged to a player with cerebral palsy competing in the 2014 America’s Cup Tournament. It was Arthur-Banning’s first time officiating a seven-a-side soccer game, a […]
The Administration on Aging, a division of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), has designated a hypertension control program developed by Clemson University faculty as an evidence-based program. The program, Health Coaches for Hypertension Control (HCHC), provides assistance to older adults with hypertension and helps lower the risk of heart disease and stroke. […]
Automotive researchers, students and manufacturers will work side by side developing and learning advanced manufacturing techniques at the new Clemson Vehicle Assembly Center that was unveiled Thursday in Greenville. Part of the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR) and located in the Greenville Technical College Center for Manufacturing Innovation, the real-world research space will provide innovative manufacturing solutions and highly trained engineers and technicians for industry.
Dust that blew into the North Pacific Ocean could help explain why the Earth’s climate cooled 2.7 million years ago, according to a new study published in the journal Science Advances. One of the co-authors was Alex Pullen, an assistant professor of environmental engineering and earth sciences at Clemson University. “Why study the past? It’s […]
