This summer, three undergraduate students began their journey as Clemson University Beckman Scholars, joining an elite group of students across 13 institutions. The University has awarded five of six scholarships to second-year students who are selected for their academic achievements.
Gov. Henry McMaster is honoring a Clemson University associate professor who has won international acclaim for engineering yeast in research that could help humankind reach Mars, develop new drugs and search for nuclear weapons production. Mark Blenner, the McQueen Quattlebaum Associate Professor, has received a 2020 Young Scientist Award for Excellence in Scientific Research. The […]
Trina Pham is a first-generation college student living on the rural outskirts of Mauldin, South Carolina, where she dreams of becoming the U.S. president’s chief advisor on science and technology. By the time she walks into the Oval Office, the big issues for Pham could include intelligent machines, humankind’s outpost on Mars and the discovery […]
Rachel Getman is the first recipient of the Murdoch Family Endowed Professorship in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. The professorship comes with funding that Getman said she expects to put into hiring a graduate student to help further her lab’s research.
Clemson University has received seed grant funding from the Health Sciences Center at Prisma Health for several COVID-19 research projects. The Health Sciences Center (HSC) released a special call for research focusing on COVID-related priorities such as disease etiology and epidemiology; health, social and economic impacts that populations experience; and innovative diagnostic and treatment interventions. […]
All of Jessica Larsen’s students who nominated her for the 2020 Phil and Mary Bradley Award for Mentoring in Creative Inquiry described her as being the most supportive and enthusiastic professor they’ve ever had. Larsen, an assistant professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering, who has a joint appointment in bioengineering, is an enthusiastic supporter of […]
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 […]
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.
Clemson University Ph.D. student Allison Domhoff has received a $25,000 Hitachi High Technologies Electron Microscopy Fellowship to support research aimed at making energy grid-scale batteries more efficient and cost-effective.
It’s always a special time when some of South Carolina’s brightest minds gather in one place, but an Oct. 4 ceremony just off Lake Hartwell was especially notable for the Clemson University College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences. Eight faculty members received awards and several others were recognized for tenure, promotions and other achievements. […]
Like so many great projects, the research that earned Ryan DeFever and Steven Hall three awards and a spot in a respected academic journal was fueled in part by coffee. “Steven and I had probably 25 walks to Starbucks and back– at least–during the course of this research,” DeFever said. “There was a lot of […]
Plants have helped cure disease and relieve pain since ancient times, and new research at Clemson University could help tap even more of their potential. Many plants hold promising pharmaceutical compounds but in quantities far too small to develop into marketable drugs. In some cases, the entire area of the United States could be farmed with a single crop and it would be enough to treat just a few patients.
Four Clemson University researchers are bringing home some of the nation’s top awards for junior faculty members, an honor that comes with new opportunities to advance technology that could lead to a more sustainable environment, robotic cars and a faster, more-secure internet.
Eric Davis of Clemson University is joining the quest to create a battery that would help utilities introduce more renewable energy to the electrical grid and reduce the amount of fossil fuel that needs to be burned. Davis, an assistant professor of chemical engineering, has launched a new research project with the help of a […]
A Clemson University associate professor whose research could help enable long-term space missions and search for some of the globe’s most destructive weapons is receiving the U.S. government’s highest honor for early-career scientists and engineers.
