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.
Two Clemson University graduate students and a post-doctoral fellow captured one-half of the poster awards presented at the 2016 Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) Basic Research Technical Review held in July near Washington, DC. In total, 66 posters were presented, representing approximately 25 universities and research organizations. Clemson winners were graduate students Edward Hoegg (“Isotope Ratio […]
Clemson scientist Jeffrey Anker and four colleagues have been awarded a five-year, $1.57 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to develop a novel imaging technique and dye-based sensor to detect and monitor bacterial infections on implanted medical devices.
Clemson University incoming freshman Riley Nordin of Saluda has won the 2016 National Wild Turkey Federation National Scholarship. The $10,000 scholarship, sponsored by Mossy Oak, will go toward Nordin’s education in genetics with a focus on plant research in the fall.
Kirin Khan of Central, a graduate of Clemson University’s biochemistry and genetics programs, has been awarded the 2016 Marcus L. Urann Fellowship by Phi Kappi Phi, the nation’s oldest and most selective collegiate honor society.
A dangerously prolific invasive ant species called the tawny crazy ant has been spreading throughout the South and now appears to be on the verge of entering South Carolina for the first time. But a team of Clemson University scientists is hot on the trail.
Clemson University’s 10-year capital campaign, “The Will to Lead,” has surpassed its billion-dollar goal with a total of $1,062,528,346 as of June 30. Clemson President James P. Clements declared it the most successful capital campaign in the university’s history and the largest goal ever achieved by a public university with an alumni base less than 150,000.
Jasmine Fields didn’t know what to expect when she signed up for Emerging Scholars, the college-access program, but once she stepped foot on Clemson’s campus, everything changed for the Allendale native.
Vertebrate life evolved from sea to land when it crawled ashore some 350 million years ago spawning the vast diversity of walking, land-dwelling, air-breathing creatures. That transition has led scientists to study how ancient fish used their fins as crutches to hoist themselves ashore. However, new evidence suggests that life could have moved forward with the help of what was behind it: a tail.
Scientific methods and computer software that have helped thousands of scientists better understand how molecules interact in the body will soon be further developed to enable modeling of large macromolecular machineries, neurons and various other phenomena in the living cell and tissues, including processes associated with tumors.
Clemson University scientist Cheryl Ingram-Smith has been awarded a three-year, $424,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to study the inner workings of a parasite that causes 50 million cases of amoebic dysentery each year and kills 50,000 to 100,000.
Holding a brain during an autopsy or creating a full knee replacement is usually left to the professionals, but Stephen Patrick got to experience all of this and more as a Clemson student.
CLEMSON — Two finalists have been named for an associate dean position in Clemson’s Graduate School. They are Stephen E. Creager, professor of chemistry at Clemson, and David S. Fleming, associate professor and graduate program director at Clemson’s Eugene T. Moore School of Education. There will be an open campus forum with each candidate. Creager’s will […]
Clemson University research scientist Zhicheng Dou has received a $64,786 grant from the Knights Templar Eye Foundation to study a microscopic parasite that can cause blindness, birth defects and other severe health consequences.
