The College of Science advances mathematics, physical sciences and life sciences and mobilizes curiosity-driven faculty and students who seek to enhance life on the planet through groundbreaking research.
Amy Pope faces a challenge at the start of the semester: introducing physics – algebra-based physics, of all things – to more than 600 Gen Ed students and making sure they feel good about the semester ahead. It’s a teaching challenge Pope loves and has become successful at facing. So successful, in fact, that she […]
An engineer who has earned six patents in six years and a geneticist developing strategies to prevent tooth decay were named Researchers of the Year at Clemson University.
Clemson University researcher Barbara Campbell and her collaborators have received a five-year, $2.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation to identify the functional mechanisms of microbes that relate to the health of ecosystems.
Electrifying research by Clemson University scientists could lead to the creation of lighter, faster-charging batteries suitable for powering a spacesuit, or even a Mars rover.
CLEMSON – A chemist who uses miniature materials to make big discoveries is Clemson University’s top postdoctoral fellow in 2020. Mohamed Attia has been awarded the Clemson University Distinguished Postdoctoral Award, which recognizes outstanding performance in scientific research, leadership, advocacy, outreach and teaching. “I feel very honored and flattered to receive this honor. It’s awesome!” […]
CLEMSON, South Carolina – Should colleges and universities resume in-person classes for the Fall 2020 semester? This is a question that a Clemson COVID Challenge team of Clemson undergraduates began to explore back in late May 2020. The team was mentored by Sharon Bewick, an assistant professor in the College of Science’s department of biological […]
Clemson University researcher Rafael Mesquita and a multi-institutional research team documented “surfer waves” in the upper atmosphere that create a pipeline of energy between layers in space.
A much-needed renovation has given new life to the Clemson University Herbarium, which houses about 100,000 plant specimens that have been carefully preserved and stored for the future.
Three teams of researchers at Clemson University have joined forces to unravel some of the mysteries surrounding perovskite nanocrystals, which are semiconductors with numerous applications, including LEDs, lasers, solar cells and photodetectors.
Two Clemson graduates have developed groundbreaking work showing that laser engraving of paper can result in the formation of fluorescent compounds similar to those present on carbon dots, which are traditionally used in sensors and electronic applications.
A collaborative team of undergraduate students recently took first place in the Clemson COVID Challenge, a summer virtual research and design opportunity that involved 86 teams and more than 500 participants.
As a graduate student at the Clemson Center for Human Genetics, Rebecca MacPherson has been able to foster research and outreach collaborations with the Greenwood Genetic Center.
CLEMSON, South Carolina – Hundreds of undergraduate students accepted the challenge to battle the COVID-19 pandemic this summer through an innovative research project spearheaded by Creative Inquiry and Delphine Dean, the Ron and Jane Lindsay Family Innovation Professor. The Clemson COVID Challenge was a virtual research and design opportunity that began in May. Teams of […]
Rob Sheffield, a physics teacher at Laurens District 55 High School, has gained hands-on physics research experience at Clemson University which he shared in a virtual workshop hosted by Harvard.
Clemson University researcher Kara Powder has been awarded an R15 grant by the NIH for her research into the genetics behind facial development that could aid in the fight against birth defects.
