A Clemson University professor's research has documented the movement of antibiotic resistance in humans into animal species. College of Science researcher Vincent Richards recently published results that draw attention to reverse zoonosis, or pathogens moving from human populations to animals.
Clemson University physicists will conduct a pair of three-year rocket missions funded by NASA Heliophysics designed to deepen our understanding of the visible and invisible mechanisms that modulate energy into Earth’s atmosphere.
Clemson University College of Science professor emeritus Miguel Larsen, who has fundamentally changed the scientific community’s understanding of the Earth’s upper atmosphere, received NASA’s Distinguished Public Service Medal on Aug. 28 at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland. The medal is the highest honor the space agency bestows to non-government personnel.
Researchers from Clemson University’s College of Science have shown for the first time that salamanders inhabiting the southern Appalachian Mountains use temperature rather than humidity as the best cue to anticipate changes in their environment. Significantly, the researchers observed that salamanders actually harness their unique ability to regenerate limbs to rapidly minimize the impact of hot temperatures.
Valerie Zimany, chair and associate professor in the department of art at Clemson University, has been awarded a 2020 South Carolina Arts Commission Artist Fellowship.
Plants have helped cure disease and relieve pain since ancient times, and new research at Clemson University could help tap even more of their potential. Many plants hold promising pharmaceutical compounds but in quantities far too small to develop into marketable drugs. In some cases, the entire area of the United States could be farmed with a single crop and it would be enough to treat just a few patients.
More than 65 Clemson University students will present at the third annual Summer Creative Inquiry and Undergraduate Research Showcase at the Watt Family Innovation Center Tuesday, Aug. 20.
Clemson University College of Science professor of chemistry Jeff Anker, whose collaborative research exemplifies the creative vision of an entrepreneurial inventor, has been named a Senior Member of the National Academy of Inventors.
New research by Clemson University scientists Shari Rodriguez and Christie Sampson in the open-access journal "PLOS Biology," examines the effects non-carnivorous species such as feral hogs and elephants can have on humans and livestock and the potential consequences of excluding these animals from research focused on mitigating wildlife impacts on livestock.
As the only academic facility in the U.S. with industrial-scale capabilities to fabricate optical fiber, the Clemson University Center for Optical Materials Science and Engineering Technologies (COMSET) is making significant impacts in the fiber-optic industry. Now, the center’s receiving its second SG Controls MCVD lathe through an in-kind gift from Molex LLC, further positioning COMSET as one of the premiere fiber-optics facilities in the world.
A Clemson University graduate student has found adding a little color to watermelon fields can attract pollinators which can help improve quality and increase yields of one of South Carolina’s most important vegetable crops.
Improving sustainability and profitability is crucial for South Carolina vegetable growers, and the fields of Clemson University’s Coastal Research and Education Center are teeming with research to help them do just that.
Clemson University researchers Patrick Jodice and Yvan Satgé went on a trailblazing expedition among an international team of seabird experts to capture black-capped petrels at sea for the first time and outfit the endangered birds with satellite transmitters.
The highest peaks of the Appalachian Mountains are home to many animal species found nowhere else on Earth. These species include many tiny arthropods, such as insects, millipedes and their relatives living in leaf litter of forests located in high elevations on the mountains. Research in these mountain communities has revealed many new species in recent years, but the full scope of their diversity remains unclear. In an effort to discover and protect these unique species, Clemson University entomology professor Michael Caterino plans to collect and document as many arthropods as he can from the mountains.
Clemson University psychologist Robin Kowalski’s recent research reveals that people think about the advice they would give their younger selves more often than many people might think, and for many this mental exercise is anything but futile. Her latest research in the Journal of Social Psychology analyzed the results of two studies on more than 400 individuals 30 years of age or older. Kowalski said the findings have been truly revealing about the nature of regret, how people can use it to self-actualize and what areas people tend to fixate on in their later years.
