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.
Stephen Foulger of Clemson University is leading a team that has received $6 million to develop a new way of stimulating specific parts of the brain in what could be the first step toward treatments for seizures and illnesses ranging from addiction to depression.
Sharp brings her statistical expertise to GHS departments, such as obstetrics and gynecology, anesthesiology, and pediatrics. Within these departments, she will assist in aggregating and analyzing collected data, in order to help examine patient outcomes after treatment.
Clemson University’s Institute of Translational Genomics will soon expand its reach with the addition of a three-year fellowship program designed to recruit and develop future leaders in the burgeoning field of agriculturally oriented computational science.
A Clemson University professor of inorganic and analytical chemistry is among the newest fellows of the American Chemical Society, an honor bestowed on fewer than one percent of its members. Joseph S. Thrasher and 56 other new fellows have been invited to the society’s fall national meeting in Philadelphia, where they will be feted. With […]
Millions of acres of magnificent longleaf pine forests that were nearly annihilated a century ago are making a slow yet promising comeback, thanks in part to a team of Clemson University researchers and their collaborators.
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.
