The College of Science’s department of physics and astronomy hosted Kevin Metrocavage, the operations manager for the International Space Station at NASA, in a departmental seminar held on Friday, March 9. Intended for faculty, staff and students in physics and astronomy, the seminar set the scene for Metrocavage to share his story of a small-town […]
Sean Brittain, an astrophysicist who studies the stars but who is also deeply grounded in supporting students and enhancing diversity and inclusion, has been named chair of the department of physics and astronomy in the College of Science at Clemson University.
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.
Vaidehi Paliya, a postdoctoral researcher in physics and astronomy, recently discovered seven galaxies that could potentially shake up what astrophysicists thought they knew about how the size of a galaxy – and the black hole at its center – can affect its behavior.
A team of Clemson University bioengineering and physics students and faculty described an irradiation fluorescence system they developed that could accelerate research in delivering very specific types of radiation in controlled doses. They also showed that low doses of specific, controlled radiation are safe for healthy cells.
CLEMSON – George Hamilton, a second-year graduate student in the College of Science’s department of physics and astronomy, has received a three-month fellowship to conduct research this summer at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf in Germany. The research will strengthen the collaboration between Hugo Sanabria’s lab at Clemson University and Claus A. M. Seidel’s group at […]
Researchers at the Clemson Nanomaterials Institute have developed a wireless energy source that generates electricity from simple mechanical motion, such as the waves in the ocean, the tap of a foot or the clap of a hand.
CLEMSON – Clemson University’s Eukaryotic Pathogens Innovation Center (EPIC) celebrated its five-year anniversary Wednesday with a spirited discussion about the College of Science center’s latest explorations into biomedical research. Then came the cutting of the cake – and the fun continued. A special guest joined the crowd to express his thanks for everything EPIC has […]
Clemson authors, scientists to hold pair of upcoming events for keepsake eclipse book.
CLEMSON, South Carolina – The TIGERS ADVANCE Distinguished Speaker Series, created to exhibit the extent of diversity among STEM scientists, has announced its lineup of speakers for the Spring 2018 semester. All talks will be held in the Watt Family Innovation Center auditorium. Robotic engineer Ayanna Howard – Feb. 20, 3-4:15 p.m. Ayanna Howard – […]
Science and technology research attracted this Tiger to Clemson. Seventeen years later, he continue to further the university's research capabilities, while building confidence in his students and challenging them to excel in their careers.
CLEMSON – The College of Science’s Amber Porter and Jim Melvin entertained about 50 members of the Clemson Fellowship Club on Tuesday night with a slideshow presentation and subsequent Q/A session about the commemorative book titled “Eclipse Over Clemson: The day Tigertown will never forget.” Porter is a lecturer in the department of physics and […]
CHICAGO, Illinois — Despite the many impressive discoveries humans have made about the universe, scientists are still unsure about the birth story of our solar system. Scientists with the University of Chicago and Clemson University have laid out a comprehensive theory for how our solar system could have formed in the wind-blown bubbles around a […]
GREENVILLE – Media specialists Jim Melvin and Wanda Johnson appeared on WSPA-TV’s “Your Carolina” on Dec. 19 to discuss the College of Science’s commemorative book titled “Eclipse Over Clemson: The day Tigertown will never forget.” Melvin, who is the director of communications for the College of Science, and Johnson, who is a media strategist for […]
