From their laboratories on a rocky planet dwarfed by the vastness of space, Clemson University scientists have managed to measure all of the starlight ever produced throughout the history of the observable universe.
A team of Clemson University researchers is working to protect humans and other mammals from the debilitating and even deadly effects of African sleeping sickness.
A concept born out of research from Clemson University’s Advanced Plant Technology (APT) Program is taking shape as a company that seeks to revolutionize regional agriculture by building a feed grain pipeline through the Southeast. The company, Carolina Seed Systems, is working to address a lack of feed grain hybrid crop development and a regional feed shortage by creating a grower-focused company to take advantage of South Carolina’s unique environment to maximize crop productivity.
Clemson University bioengineers are launching a new research project to better understand cardiovascular disease in patients with diabetes, an affliction that affects about 13 percent of South Carolina adults and cost $4.3 billion last year alone. What the bioengineers learn could help lay the groundwork for future studies aimed at finding new treatments.
Vomit can create huge health concerns and for the more than 2 million people currently living in long-term care facilities and proper cleanup is critical to preventing the spread of disease. A group of Clemson University researchers is part of a team that has received a $1.5 million grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality to study vomit cleanup.
New research stemming from scientists at Clemson University has optimized a novel imaging technique that could help doctors better visualize tumors. The research – published recently in the International Journal of Nanomedicine – expanded upon a technique known as multi-photon imaging, which uses near-infrared light to excite fluorescent molecules that are injected near the site of a tumor.
With an $11 million grant from the National Institutes of Health Center for Biomedical Research Excellence, Clemson University has launched the South Carolina Center for Translational Research Improving Musculoskeletal Health, or SC-TRIMH, a new research center that will bring together scientists from across South Carolina to change the way musculoskeletal disorders are diagnosed, treated and even studied.
A group of Clemson researchers wants to show South Carolina farmers how organically growing cereal and pulse crops can improve nutrition while lowering production costs.
Clemson faculty have been awarded a grant from the National Institutes of Health to investigate the use of 3D imaging that could allow for quicker diagnosis of children with Phelan-McDermid syndrome, a rare genetic condition that causes intellectual and physical disabilities. Due to the rarity of the syndrome, diagnosis is difficult and can have families waiting months or years for conclusive answers. Researchers hope their work will speed up diagnosis.
An entomologist at Clemson University’s Coastal Research and Education Center has been awarded a prestigious fellowship to further her work in understanding how predatory mites can be used to protect South Carolina crops from pests.
Trudy Mackay and Robert Anholt of Clemson University’s Center for Human Genetics have received $1.87 million from the National Institutes of Health to advance research aimed at significantly increasing our fundamental understanding of the complex roles molecular variations play in human disease.
A Clemson researcher recently published insights into homemade steroids and steroid trafficking through a study of federal court cases. The research details why homemade steroids became popular and how online tools and cryptocurrency have allowed for their rapid spread.
Vincent Richards, an assistant professor of biology at Clemson University, has received an NIH grant to study the association between tooth decay and HIV infection in a population of children from Nigeria.
A novel hybrid approach performed by researchers from Clemson University and Stony Brook University has revealed a 3-D structure of a protein fragment that could serve as a drug target in treating stroke patients.
Weak corn and sorghum stalks cause the loss of about 20 percent of the crops in the U.S. annually, and Rajan Sekhon and Christopher McMahan of Clemson University’s College of Science are part of a multi-university consortium trying to find out why.
