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 […]
A Clemson University College of Science researcher, together with a team of researchers, developed and demonstrated new optical imaging methods to monitor a single molecule in action. This fluorescence-based technique may accelerate the field of structural biology, helping scientists better understand how molecules are assembled, function, and interact, which in turn may aid in structure-guided drug design.
The American Institute of Physics (AIP) “Scilight” featured physics assistant professor Rama Podila’s latest cancer-detection biosensor work on World Cancer Day (Feb. 4, 2020). Podila and his graduate students Bipin Sharma and Prakash Parajuli developed a sensing technique to detect up to femtomoles of a particular protein (uPA) that indicates cancer metastasis. The team combined quantum mechanical […]
Hugo Sanabria looks into the smallest places to find answers to life’s biggest questions. An associate professor doing research in biophysics, Sanabria joined Clemson’s physics and astronomy department in 2014 and went about designing and building a microscope that could zoom in to a single molecule and measure its movement in time and space.
For the second year in a row, seven Clemson University faculty members received 2018 National Science Foundation Early Faculty Career Development Awards, one of the most prestigious awards to young faculty. From adapting the art of Japanese origami to structural engineering to predicting the earth’s response to space storms, these Clemson assistant professors apply their […]
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.
Published this week in Nature Methods, a team of 27 labs across the world – including Hugo Sanabria’s “Single Molecule Biophysics” lab at Clemson University – came together to devise a standard protocol for measuring distances in biomolecules.
CLEMSON – Emil Alexov, a professor in the department of physics and astronomy, has received the 2018 Alumni Award for Outstanding Achievement in Research, one of the highest honors for a faculty researcher at Clemson University. Alexov joined the university in 2005 and has since forged a path in the field of biophysics, a science […]
CLEMSON – With a number of events planned in the coming week, the College of Science is gearing up for busy days ahead. Saturday, March 10 – CBASS features college and high school students The Clemson Biological Sciences Annual Student Symposium (CBASS), held by the department of biological sciences, will occur in the Life Sciences […]
A team of scientists from Clemson University and Cornell University is developing the first set of computational techniques that can predict how DNA mutations affect proteins and protein-to-protein interactions, which are vital in determining how the body’s tissues and organs function. Their study also holds the potential to accelerate the synthesis of new drug treatments for a variety of genetic disorders.
CLEMSON, South Carolina – The 5th Annual Cell Biology of Eukaryotic Pathogens (CBEP) meeting was held on Oct. 19-20 at the Clemson Outdoor Lab, bringing together some of the best parasitic and fungal disease researchers in North America for coffee and collaboration. Hosted by Clemson University’s Eukaryotic Pathogens Innovation Center (EPIC), the meeting is held […]
Yunhui Peng, a doctoral student in Clemson University College of Science’s department of physics and astronomy, received a 2017 Chateaubriand Fellowship from the Embassy of France in the United States.
Clemson researchers Feng Ding and Weiguo Cao recently received a collaborative $1.8 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to attain a deeper understanding of the intricate inner workings of Type 2 diabetes.
