After nine years of what he called “two geeky nerds spending a lot of time and money looking for a snake,” Bryan Hudson watched the reptile named Russell slither off into the northeast Georgia landscape barely a week after it was captured. Hudson admitted he was unlikely to lay eyes on the five-foot-long snake again for a full year. But for the Clemson University doctoral student, his collaborators and a slew of stakeholders on hand for the July 12 release, that’s when the real research on Russell began.
Research by two Clemson University professors on Russian social media trolling has drawn the interest of U.S. agencies charged with protecting the country’s national security. Patrick Warren, associate professor in the John E. Walker Department of Economics and Darren Linvill, associate professor in the department of communication, have shared their extensive research on Russian social media disinformation campaigns with the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee, the Department of Homeland Security, other federal law enforcement agencies and more recently, U.S. Army Cyber Command.
Astronauts on deep-space missions won’t be able to run to the store for disinfectant wipes, but they may have another way of cleaning surfaces inside their spaceship, and it could involve human waste. Sudeep Popat of Clemson University is developing a way of making hydrogen peroxide for use on long-term space missions. He proposes to do it by feeding human waste to microbial fuel cells that produce hydrogen peroxide.
May 2019 Clemson graduate Morgan Nichols was recently named Miss South Carolina. Her state and national platform will focus on STEM education.
Researchers from Clemson University’s Environmental Toxicology Program have published novel research connecting an enzyme associated with detoxification to obesity and fatty liver disease.
A team of Clemson University scientists has achieved a breakthrough in the genetics of senescence in cereal crops with the potential to dramatically impact the future of food security in the era of climate change.
Four Clemson University researchers are bringing home some of the nation’s top awards for junior faculty members, an honor that comes with new opportunities to advance technology that could lead to a more sustainable environment, robotic cars and a faster, more-secure internet.
The Clemson University Division of Research and the Health Sciences Center (HSC) at Prisma Health recently signed agreements to fund up to $200,000 per year in grants through the new Innovation Maturation Fund. The health care-focused grants are intended to advance the development and implementation of new medical initiatives, advance translational science, create job and educational opportunities, improve health care and drive economic growth in the region.
Joseph Mazer, professor and chair of Clemson’s communication department, has been named to a three-year term as editor of Communication Education, a flagship journal published by the National Communication Association and the nation’s premier publication for research in the field.
A faculty-led team of graduate and undergraduate researchers from Clemson University’s Eukaryotic Pathogens Innovation Center has unveiled new findings designed to help pave the way to an eventual cure of a parasitic infection that affects millions around the nation and world.
The agricultural workforce is shrinking and some Clemson University researchers believe robots may help provide a means to protect America’s food and fiber industries. A group of them studying the use of robots in agriculture recently met with researchers from other universities and representatives from Clearpath Robotics to learn about programs and hardware that are available to equip robots to work in agricultural crops.
A new initiative between Clemson University and SeeDaten Inc. will allow students and faculty to explore augmented reality and mixed reality learning tools at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR).
A team of researchers from Clemson University and Prisma Health–Upstate are working to create a screening process to catch ovarian cancer in the early or pre-cancerous stages. Their goal is to make this screening as simple and easy for women as getting a pap smear. The idea is to identify the pre-cancerous changes through the makeup of the cervical mucus.
CLEMSON, S.C. — Space might be the final frontier, but as China announces plans to build a moon base, NASA begins working on manned missions to Mars and spaceships continue to probe deep space, one group of scholars is asking: are human colonies in space ethical? “As long as space colonization was merely the dream […]
Research at the Clemson University Center for Human Genetics is revealing new insights into how genes impact drug use and addiction through a novel study of susceptibility to the effects of cocaine and methamphetamine in fruit flies.
