The Clemson University Research Foundation (CURF) has announced eight researchers will receive fiscal year 2018 Technology Maturation Fund grants to support the last critical step in development needed to move new technologies to the marketplace.
Heart-attack damage could be repaired with stem cells and tiny “nanowires” as part of a new research project that involves all three of South Carolina’s major research universities and is backed by $1.5 million from the National Institutes of Health. Ying Mei, an assistant professor of bioengineering at Clemson University, is leading the project.
Sarah W. Harcum of Clemson University is leading a team that has received $6 million for research that could help lower the cost of several drugs that run into the thousands of dollars per treatment and fight some of the world’s most debilitating ailments.
CLEMSON, South Carolina — Three Clemson University College of Science researchers recently shared their areas of expertise with a group of 16 graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and faculty members from other universities in a training workshop. Dubbed “Camp Lasernode,” the June 12-16 workshop aimed to teach the attendees — some of whom came from outside […]
Lisa Benson of Clemson University is beginning to make plans for her five-year term as editor of the Journal of Engineering Education, the nation’s premier publication for research in the field.
Kate Gasparro said that when she thinks about her success, she goes back to the first conversation she had with fellow Clemson University alumnus Bob Hambright. Gasparro remembered she was applying for a leadership award that bears Hambright’s name when he impressed upon her the importance of self-examination, a lesson she took to heart. She went on to win the Norris Medal, the highest honor for an undergraduate at Clemson, and is now a Ph.D. student at Stanford University.
The award winners were: Molly Kennedy, Sez Atamturktur, Garrett Pataky, Amy Apon, Ronnie Chowdhury, John DesJardins and Simona Onori.
When an MUSC breast cancer surgeon looked for a faster, easier and less invasive way to locate tumors during surgery, she turned to Clemson. Two senior bioengineering students created a device to detect the titanium markers, potentially eliminating a step in breast cancer surgery.
One of the top 10 killers for men older than 55 is the target of Clemson University research that could lead to a new lifesaving therapy and a better way of telling whether surgery is necessary.
Hubbell Lighting Inc., a world leader in lighting innovation, and the Hubbell Foundation have pledged $250,000 to Clemson University to establish the Hubbell Foundation Engineering Scholarship Endowment.
One of the biggest risks that patients face when they undergo dialysis is coming into focus with the start of a five-year project aimed at building and testing a simulator that could revolutionize how nurses and technicians are trained. The $717,000 project is led by Joseph Singapogu, a Clemson University research assistant professor of bioengineering […]
The non-fiction book and its film counterpart “Hidden Figures” revealed the genius behind the American space race in the 1960s: a cohort of black women who, despite segregation and discrimination, applied their genius in math and engineering to help send our rockets and astronauts into space and bring them back safely.
A team of Clemson University researchers and an Upstate businessman believe they can help make football a little safer by creating a facemask that can help reduce the severity of head injuries by increasing overall helmet protection.
