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 team of researchers from Clemson University’s College of Science recently demonstrated that a novel double-helical MOF architecture, in a partially oxidized form, can conduct electricity that potentially makes it a next-generation semiconductor.
CLEMSON — College of Science graduate student Rebecca MacPherson, a member of professor Trudy Mackay’s research group, conducts genetics-based research that could someday translate into new approaches for treating children born with fetal alcohol syndrome. She’s also an advocate for increasing science literacy and sharing her results with the public. On March 12-13, MacPherson was […]

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 […]
LIBERTY – The Sarlin Community Branch Library was transformed into a science lab Feb. 1 as Clemson chemistry students and area children created slime, dissolved Styrofoam and made glassware disappear as part of the third annual “Fun With Chemistry” outreach event. More than 20 students from the Chemistry Graduate Student Organization and Student Affiliates of […]
LIBERTY – Have you ever wanted to learn how to make a gummy worm? Well, now’s your chance. “Fun with Chemistry,” presented by undergraduate and graduate chemistry students from Clemson University’s College of Science, will teach children 8-13 years old how to do several hands-on experiments and get excited about chemistry. The free event will […]
Clemson University College of Science professor Joe Kolis recently received a $550,000 Department of Energy grant to rationally design new quantum materials from rare earth oxides. An expert in hydrothermal synthesis, Kolis will use a combination of water, high pressure and extreme heat to make new compounds with magnetic and other properties that are suitable for quantum computing and data storage.
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 chemistry faculty member Andy Tennyson has received a highly competitive National Research Council (NRC) Senior Research Associateship award to develop new materials for organic solar cells. The award enables Tennyson to take a yearlong sabbatical from Clemson to conduct his research in the Chemistry Research Center at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs beginning in January.
CLEMSON — The College’s fall semester faculty kickoff meeting was held Aug. 19 at the Barnes Center and focused on highlights and initiatives. “Our science faculty continue to strengthen our national prominence and elevate the science learning experience through their excellence in scientific discovery, learning and engagement,” Dean Cynthia Y. Young said. Overall, Young’s presentation […]
Clemson University College of Science professor of chemistry Jeff Anker, whose collaborative research exemplifies the creative vision of an entrepreneurial inventor, has been named a Senior Member of the National Academy of Inventors.
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.
A prolific inventor and a scientist working to increase diversity in the engineering field were named Researchers of the Year at Clemson University. Ken Marcus, a chemistry professor whose discoveries have fueled innovations in health care, national defense, advanced materials and other industries, was named senior Researcher of the Year. Mark Blenner, the McQueen-Quattlebaum associate professor in the chemical and biomolecular engineering department, was named junior Researcher of the Year.
