Wielding state-of-the-art technologies and techniques, Clemson astrophysicists have added a novel approach to quantifying one of the most fundamental laws of the universe – the expansion of the cosmos.
An experienced researcher, professor and leader at Michigan State University has been tapped to help generate more opportunities for the Clemson University research community.
More than 70 industry representatives and Clemson University faculty members assembled at the Madren Conference Center to learn how to forge research collaborations funded through Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grants. SBIR and STTR grants stimulate the development and private commercialization of technological innovations derived from federal research-and-development funding.
The Clemson University Research Foundation (CURF) has announced seven researchers will be awarded fiscal year 2020 Technology Maturation Fund grants to support them as they embark on the crucial last stage needed to move their technology from innovation to commercialization.
For millions of years, symbiotic bacteria have lived inside the gill cells of Lucinidae clams found in seagrass meadows located mainly along tropical coasts, such as the Florida Keys. These bacteria play a crucial role in the clam’s survival while also contributing to the overall health of the seagrass in which the clams live. As important as the bacteria are, little was known about their makeup until now. Scientists at Clemson University have recently published a paper indicating that the bacteria are more taxonomically diverse than previously thought.
Clemson University Ph.D. student Allison Domhoff has received a $25,000 Hitachi High Technologies Electron Microscopy Fellowship to support research aimed at making energy grid-scale batteries more efficient and cost-effective.
Clemson University researcher Jennifer Mason is working to understand how DNA strands damaged during replication may play a role in causing cancer, leading to better treatment strategies.
A study by two Clemson University researchers, along with a professor at the University of Arizona, has found there’s work to be done by California public companies that are required by law to have at least one female director on their boards by the end of the year.
Clemson University researchers are developing three new sensors designed to withstand two of humanity’s harshest environments, the intense heat inside power plants and the tremendous pressure at the bottom of hydraulic fracturing wells. The research, led by Hai Xiao, is aimed at advancing the technology behind fossil fuels, which produce much of the nation’s power. The ultimate goal is to generate power more efficiently while lowering emissions and using fewer resources.
Two Clemson University scientists who are prominent members of the global agricultural research community will play key roles in a new Feed the Future laboratory focused on tackling the global challenges of climate change, poverty and food security. Stephen Kresovich, the Robert and Lois Coker Trustees Endowed Chair of Genetics in Clemson’s plant and environmental sciences department, has been named director of the laboratory, and Dil Thavarajah, Clemson associate professor of pulse crop quality and nutrition, will co-lead the lab’s trait analysis team.
CLEMSON, South Carolina — Clemson University College of Science professor Hong Luo has received a $500,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture National Institute of Food and Agriculture to develop genetically improved and more robust turfgrass and switchgrass. These perennial plants represent a multibillion-dollar segment of the U.S. agricultural economy. Covering millions of acres […]
A team of researchers recently received a $1.94 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to investigate what environmental education program characteristics matter and how they’re best delivered to maximize learning outcomes for youth participants. Researchers from Clemson University, Virginia Tech and the University of North Carolina Wilmington will visit more than 500 programs based out of numerous organizations to isolate what works in what context and for whom.
A company spun off from Clemson's Advanced Plant Technology Program is putting down roots where its concept sprouted near the university's Pee Dee Research and Education Center in Florence to serve growers along the Interstate 95 corridor and rural South Carolina by addressing a lack of feed grain hybrid crop development and a regional feed shortage.
A group of South Carolina researchers working on new treatments for a variety of illnesses ranging from diabetes to heart disease cheered the decision to grant five years of funding to a biomedical research center based at Clemson University. The National Institute of General Medical Sciences is providing $5.7 million to the South Carolina Bioengineering Center for Regeneration and Formation of Tissues. It’s the institute’s third round of competitive funding for the center, also called SCBioCRAFT.
A new series of events seeks to grow and enhance collaborations between the Clemson University research enterprise and industry. The first event of the INPSIRE series will offer small businesses and Clemson research faculty, staff and students the opportunity to learn the aspects of writing Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grants.
