Clemson University scientists have taken another step forward in their quest to find a cure for a notorious parasite that has infected more than 40 million Americans and many times that number around the world.
Clemson University virologists Kaustubha "Kos" Qanungo and Matt Turnbull participate in Q&A session on commonly asked questions about the pandemic.
Biological sciences researcher Matthew Koski has received a three-year, $455,000 NSF grant to study how flowers adapt to heat and cold.
As you look back over your time as a student at Clemson, I hope there are many great moments engraved in your memories. I encourage each of you to stay connected and engaged with each other, your department, your friends, your faculty, our college and our university.
A study by Clemson scientist Matthew Koski suggests that pollen color can evolve independently from flower traits, and that plant species maintain both light and dark pollen because each offers distinct survival advantages.
Three College of Science undergraduates are recipients of the 2020 Barry M. Goldwater Scholarships, the premier and highly competitive national award for students who have the potential to advance research in mathematics, natural sciences and engineering.
CLEMSON — An international team of researchers, including department of biological sciences professor Saara DeWalt, has published a study in the journal Science that predicts how tropical forests, which play a protective role in climate change, may change over decades and even centuries. The study, which was led by Nadja Rüger, junior research group leader […]
CLEMSON, South Carolina — Although mostly preventable, tooth decay is one of the most common chronic diseases in children worldwide, particularly in developing countries. If left untreated, cavities can be painful and may negatively affect a young child’s overall health, development and quality of life. Clemson University College of Science researchers recently conducted a study […]

CLEMSON, South Carolina — Biological sciences assistant professor Zhicheng Dou has received a $1.85 million collaborative grant from the National Institutes of Health to better understand the molecular mechanisms of the parasite that causes toxoplasmosis, a widespread human infectious disease afflicting more than 40 million people. Dou’s work might help pave the way for finding […]
CLEMSON — Biological Sciences graduate student Heather Andrews Walters is receiving the Clemson University Distinguished Master’s Thesis Award in Life Sciences—one of only two master’s thesis awards presented by the Graduate College across the entire campus. Walters thesis, “Phosphorylation of Eukaryotic Initiation Factor 2-Alpha in Response to Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress and Nitrosative Stress in Entamoeba […]
CLEMSON, South Carolina – In high school, students are taught that research revolves around the scientific method: start with a question, formulate a hypothesis, design and perform an experiment, collect and analyze the data, draw a conclusion, and publish the results. The reality, though, which many students subsequently learn in college, is that research is […]
