Clemson University researcher Barbara Campbell and her collaborators have received a five-year, $2.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation to identify the functional mechanisms of microbes that relate to the health of ecosystems.
Electrifying research by Clemson University scientists could lead to the creation of lighter, faster-charging batteries suitable for powering a spacesuit, or even a Mars rover.
Clemson University Research and Education Centers (RECs) will hold their first-ever Virtual Fall Field Days this year to inform the public of important research while protecting people from COVID-19.

A new smartphone app developed by a Clemson researcher is designed to aid coroners and forensic teams in determining time of death by improving the understanding of body decomposition. The app allows users to enter observations, photos and other information related to geography and crime scene data when uncovering human or animal remains. After years of use, app developers hope the data collected will allow a near-instant estimate of time of death in the field.
Clemson’s Department of Forestry and Environmental Conservation and Clemson Extension are working with local and state agencies to create a community-driven watershed plan for the area — a first step toward reducing pollution and improving water quality for the Edisto community.
Three teams of researchers at Clemson University have joined forces to unravel some of the mysteries surrounding perovskite nanocrystals, which are semiconductors with numerous applications, including LEDs, lasers, solar cells and photodetectors.
Two Clemson graduates have developed groundbreaking work showing that laser engraving of paper can result in the formation of fluorescent compounds similar to those present on carbon dots, which are traditionally used in sensors and electronic applications.
Though strict landlord regulation may result in fewer evictions during the COVID-19 pandemic, research by a Clemson University professor cautions that too much protection for tenants could result in fewer and more expensive rental properties, prompting increased homelessness.
Healthy Me-Healthy SC (HMHSC) will provide COVID-19 testing support to the rural and underserved areas of the Midlands and Upstate regions of South Carolina. HMHSC, a partnership between MUSC and Clemson, will deploy a mobile testing team to conduct screening and collections in rural and underserved areas. Mobile testing sites through HMHSC kicked off in Walhalla, S.C. on Thursday, July 30, with the goal to provide weekly screening sessions over the course of the next six months. Testing sites will be set up at various locations to collect COVID-19 respiratory specimens from both walk-up and drive-through patients.
Clemson University researcher Kara Powder has been awarded an R15 grant by the NIH for her research into the genetics behind facial development that could aid in the fight against birth defects.
In a yet-to-be-released study, Clemson University researchers Patrick Warren and Darren Linvill are examining the strategies Russian social media trolls employ in peddling their disinformation campaigns aimed at dividing the U.S. public. Warren recently presented early findings of their most recent research into Russian Twitter trolls at a Clemson online research symposium this summer. In […]
Clemson scientist Feng Ding is working to develop a quick detection test for COVID-19 with funding from a one-year National Science Foundation RAPID grant.
College of Science researcher David Feliciano receives a $667,000 grant from the Department of Defense to explore a developmental disorder characterized by the growth of benign tumors throughout the body and brain.
Clemson researchers have used grant funds from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to combat obesity in South Carolina since 2018, and work continues to yield positive results despite obstacles presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. Most recently, researchers and health extension agents behind the CDC High-Obesity Program have linked the outreach work of Mt. Calvary Missionary Baptist Church in Bishopville, which connects 25 local churches to aid over 500 families in and around Lee County, with Foodshare SC, a nonprofit organization based in Richland County that provides affordable, fresh food boxes across the state. This collaboration has translated to thousands of pounds of fresh food reaching the tables of food insecure families across the Pee Dee.
