When she was a young child, Clemson astrophysics graduate student Jordan Eagle enjoyed viewing the stars and planets with her father. “Looking through the telescope with him really ignited my interest in the universe,” she said. In January, Eagle will begin a two-year research project at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) in Cambridge, Massachusetts, courtesy of a Chandra X-ray Observatory pre-doctoral fellowship, which provides her with funding to complete her doctoral work.

Clemson University chemistry faculty member Andy Tennyson has received a highly competitive National Research Council (NRC) Senior Research Associateship award to develop new materials for organic solar cells. The award enables Tennyson to take a yearlong sabbatical from Clemson to conduct his research in the Chemistry Research Center at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs beginning in January.
Hugo Sanabria looks into the smallest places to find answers to life’s biggest questions. An associate professor doing research in biophysics, Sanabria joined Clemson’s physics and astronomy department in 2014 and went about designing and building a microscope that could zoom in to a single molecule and measure its movement in time and space.

A Clemson University professor's research has documented the movement of antibiotic resistance in humans into animal species. College of Science researcher Vincent Richards recently published results that draw attention to reverse zoonosis, or pathogens moving from human populations to animals.
Clemson University physicists will conduct a pair of three-year rocket missions funded by NASA Heliophysics designed to deepen our understanding of the visible and invisible mechanisms that modulate energy into Earth’s atmosphere.
Clemson University’s main campus covers some 17,000 acres, but the Tiger paw also adorns dozens of satellite campuses and research centers placed across the entire expanse of South Carolina. One of those orange dots on the map is the Plant and Pest Diagnostic Clinic in Pendleton, which is where you’ll find diagnostician and manager Meg […]
Clemson University College of Science professor emeritus Miguel Larsen, who has fundamentally changed the scientific community’s understanding of the Earth’s upper atmosphere, received NASA’s Distinguished Public Service Medal on Aug. 28 at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland. The medal is the highest honor the space agency bestows to non-government personnel.
Researchers from Clemson University’s College of Science have shown for the first time that salamanders inhabiting the southern Appalachian Mountains use temperature rather than humidity as the best cue to anticipate changes in their environment. Significantly, the researchers observed that salamanders actually harness their unique ability to regenerate limbs to rapidly minimize the impact of hot temperatures.
