Cynthia Y. Young, vice provost for Faculty Excellence and UCF Global at the University of Central Florida, has been chosen to lead the new College of Science at Clemson University as its founding dean. A professor of mathematics, Young will begin on Aug. 15.
Clemson University scientist Amber Porter was recently honored by a prestigious Upstate women’s event for a range of accomplishments that includes coordinating “Eclipse Over Clemson,” a viewing party for the upcoming Aug. 21 total solar eclipse.
Spectators who come to Clemson University for the Aug. 21 “Eclipse Over Clemson” event can enjoy the expansive view of the sky from a designated “tailgazing” spot at the Snow Family Outdoor Fitness and Wellness Center.
Clemson scientist Donald Liebenberg has personally witnessed and researched 26 total solar eclipses in the past 60-plus years. Here he is in Lusaka, Zambia in 2001.
CLEMSON, South Carolina – For many people, the Aug. 21 total solar eclipse will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and for those who hope to photograph the event, the Clemson University campus — which is almost perfectly in the path of totality — will be an ideal location. Photographing an eclipse, however, requires special equipment as […]
CLEMSON, South Carolina – Visualizing biological cells under a microscope was just made clearer, thanks to research conducted by graduate student Yifei Jiang and principal investigator Jason McNeill of Clemson University’s department of chemistry. With the help of Rhonda Powell and Terri Bruce of Clemson’s Light Imaging Facility, the team was able to develop a […]

Research conducted by Zhicheng Dou, an assistant professor of biological sciences in the College of Science, was featured in the June 2017 issue of Nature Microbiology. The findings, concerning the parasitic disease toxoplasmosis, suggest that the parasite’s “stomach” is a key target for drug development.
Clemson scientist Donald Liebenberg has personally witnessed and researched 26 total solar eclipses in the past 60-plus years. He was on the ground for eclipses 12 to 14 in Mexico, Aruba and Turkey, respectively.
Clemson scientist Donald Liebenberg has personally witnessed and researched 26 total solar eclipses in the past 60-plus years. For his 10th eclipse he was on the ground in Montana in 1979. Then the next year, for his 11th eclipse, he was again in an airplane, but this time over Africa.
The “Great American Eclipse” – the first total solar eclipse to stretch across the entire contiguous United States since 1918 – is set to occur on Aug. 21. Everyone in the U.S. will be in position to observe the moon partially cover the sun. But those located within the path of totality will experience the […]
CLEMSON, South Carolina — Three Clemson University College of Science researchers recently shared their areas of expertise with a group of 16 graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and faculty members from other universities in a training workshop. Dubbed “Camp Lasernode,” the June 12-16 workshop aimed to teach the attendees — some of whom came from outside […]
