To the Clemson Community: These are challenging times unlike anything I have seen in more than 30 years of working in higher education. I know many of you are concerned about your health, and the health of your loved ones – we are, too. In fact, every decision we have made over the past few […]
Clemson University researchers from the College of Behavioral, Social and Health Sciences (CBSHS), the College of Engineering, Computing and Applies Sciences (CECAS) and College of Science (COS) have been awarded 14 seed grants from the Seed Grant Program at Health Sciences Center (HSC) at Prisma Health. The grants will fund projects on a variety of […]
Four Clemson University engineers who are expanding research and education into advanced manufacturing and biotechnology innovation have been honored with named professorships. The honorees, their professorships and departments are: Kapil Chalil Madathil, the Wilfred P. Tiencken Professorship, dual appointment in the Glenn Department of Civil Engineering and the Department of Industrial Engineering Delphine Dean, the […]
A Clemson University graduate who worked for two medical device companies before returning to his alma mater to teach has been appointed to an associate professorship that will allow him to expand his research and develop new ties with industry partners. Jeremy Mercuri is the first John Witherspoon Gilpin, M.D. ‘82 Endowed Associate Professor in […]
A bioengineer who works with students to create medical devices for rural areas of Tanzania and other low-resource settings is the first recipient of a professorship named for the family of Clemson University alumni Ron Lindsay and his wife, Jane. Delphine Dean said she is happy to be the first holder of the Ron and […]
An important part of medical school could soon be upgraded for the digital age, as a group of Clemson University researchers develop the first simulator of its kind to help teach future vascular surgeons how to suture blood vessels. The SutureCoach would come equipped with cameras and sensors to capture a range of data, including how the surgical tool and needle move and the forces the user exerts.
Researchers at Clemson University and Prisma Health have received funding to collaborate on the development of new medical treatment and diagnostic technologies. Three Clemson-Prisma Health collaborations received investments from the recently created Innovation Maturation Fund, a joint effort between the Health Sciences Center (HSC) at Prisma Health and the Clemson University Division of Research.
Martine LaBerge said that in her 17 years leading Clemson University’s bioengineering department, she has learned something about leadership that she passes on to colleagues who are just starting down the same path. “I tell them it’s all about people,” she said. “You get people aligned under one roof to believe in one brand and […]
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.
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.
In just three short years, William Richardson has gone from a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Virginia to an assistant professor in Clemson University’s bioengineering department and a junior investigator for the South Carolina Center for Translational Research Improving Musculoskeletal Health (SC-TRIMH). And this year, he’s completed a milestone as a junior investigator: receive […]
Hai Yao and Michael Kern were posing for a picture in a lab packed with microscopes, computers and other scientific equipment when the photographer asked, “How close are you?” Without hesitation, Kern threw an arm around Yao’s shoulders, and they beamed at the camera with the kind of familiarity that comes from working together for […]
If she hadn't been injured in a naval accident, Melissa McCullough may never have found the purpose she has at Clemson University. McCullough is pursuing her Ph.D. in bioengineering under the guidance of Delphine Dean while teaching and working full-time as the bioinstrumentation lab manager.
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.
Their faces lit up the scoreboard, they patted Howard’s Rock and they celebrated by the end zone. Some of Clemson University’s top alumni gathered in Memorial Stadium on the night of April 25 for the annual showcase gala of the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences. Three of the college’s alumni were inducted into […]
