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.
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.
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 […]
CLEMSON – College of Science researcher Sumanta Tewari, an expert in theoretical condensed matter physics, has published a perspective article in Science describing current research on a novel quantum particle with applications for quantum computing. Tewari’s collaborative article titled “Majorana fermions go for a ride” appeared in Science on Jan. 2. West Virginia professor Tudor […]
Emil Alexov, Ph.D., a professor in the Clemson University Department of Physics and Astronomy, is Clemson University School of Health Research’s newest faculty fellow. During his fellowship, he will focus on researching the genetic origin of drug addiction. “I’m honored to be chosen as a faculty fellow because it will open a new opportunity for […]
This Tiger is excited to teach students, conduct research and make new discoveries that make positive contributions to society. He says he’s proud to be part of a place where science and discovery are valued. Meet Ramakrishna Podila. Title: Assistant professor, Physics and Astronomy Years at Clemson: 4 What I do at Clemson: My lab focuses […]
CLEMSON – Twenty years ago, Terry Tritt taught his first class as a Clemson faculty member. It was a general physics course, packed with hundreds of undergraduate science and engineering students – and when Tritt cracked a joke, his audience wasn’t moved. “Everybody was looking at me real seriously. Nobody was smiling. And I thought: […]
CLEMSON, South Carolina – In August, a study conducted by physics and astronomy professors Chad Sosolik and Joan Marler was highlighted in the American Institute of Physics’ publication, titled “Scilight.” Featuring the most exciting research in physical science from associated AIP Publishing Journals, Scilight is published on a weekly basis for a far-reaching scientific audience. […]
While most people's jobs require that they look down or forward, this Tiger looks up. In fact, she's been looking up for the past two years to study this week's total solar eclipse, which grabbed the attention of a nation - and the world.
Clemson University professor James Morris received a $184,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health to research a new method of starving the deadly parasites that threaten millions of people worldwide. If successful, the work could lead to the development of oral treatments for African sleeping sickness, Chagas disease and Baghdad boil, an infection that has afflicted U.S. troops in the Middle East.
Scientists converged at Clemson University this month to share research aimed at treating diseases responsible for millions of deaths around the world.
Scientific methods and computer software that have helped thousands of scientists better understand how molecules interact in the body will soon be further developed to enable modeling of large macromolecular machineries, neurons and various other phenomena in the living cell and tissues, including processes associated with tumors.
Eight faculty members in the College of Engineering and Science received awards on May 4 at a dinner held in their honor and attended by their families, colleagues and top college officials. The honorees were Thompson Mefford, Steve Stuart, Joe Kolis, Scott Husson, Tim DeVol, Naren Vyavahare, Robert Riggs and Mary Beth Kurz. The college […]
Emily Thompson's sensible flats are firmly planted on terra firma. She'll graduate in May as one of Clemson's most-decorated physics undergraduates ever, racking up honors from a Goldwater Fellowship to an Astronaut Scholarship and "every award available to her at Clemson," according to Mark Leising, the interim dean of the new College of Science.
