Clemson University rising junior Riley Garvey is passionate about marine biology, and a major scholarship from the Department of Commerce’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will help him further his professional development in this field.
What came first, the chicken or the egg? If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound? If seedless watermelon don’t make seeds, what do farmers plant to grow them? While Clemson agricultural scientists can’t answer the first two eternal questions, they will be sure to answer the third during the 2019 Watermelon Field Day slated for July 11 at Clemson’s Edisto Research and Education Center, 64 Research Road, Blackville.
FLANDERS, Belgium – As part of a European tour in late May and early June, College of Science geneticist Trudy Mackay delivered the Herman Vanden Berghe Lecture 2019 at the Center for Human Genetics at Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. Mackay, director of the Clemson University Center for Human Genetics, is recognized as one of the world’s […]
It’s impossible to see with the naked eye, but metals at high temperatures show a behavior similar to soap bubbles– and understanding how that works is central to the research Fadi Abdeljawad is conducting at Clemson University. Abdeljawad, an assistant professor of mechanical engineering, is developing theoretical and computational models that explain how metals respond […]
Weeds cause $32 billion in crop losses each year by battling crops for nutrients from the soil, according to Matt Cutulle, assistant professor of vegetable weed science at Clemson’s Coastal Research and Education Center. Effective weed control starts when growers are mindful of the weed-free period, which is a critical point during the growing season when weeds cause the largest yield loss, he said.
For a single day when Amanda Bluhm was five, she wanted to be an ambulance driver. In high school, she flirted with being a wedding planner. These interests were fleeting; they didn’t stick. She had already made it clear from the age of three that she was going to be a teacher. In elementary school, […]
While Touya loves bringing French language and culture to his students in the classroom, his favorite thing is bringing the classroom across the ocean to France.
A faculty-led team of graduate and undergraduate researchers from Clemson University’s Eukaryotic Pathogens Innovation Center has unveiled new findings designed to help pave the way to an eventual cure of a parasitic infection that affects millions around the nation and world.
The agricultural workforce is shrinking and some Clemson University researchers believe robots may help provide a means to protect America’s food and fiber industries. A group of them studying the use of robots in agriculture recently met with researchers from other universities and representatives from Clearpath Robotics to learn about programs and hardware that are available to equip robots to work in agricultural crops.
A new initiative between Clemson University and SeeDaten Inc. will allow students and faculty to explore augmented reality and mixed reality learning tools at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR).
A collaborative partnership involving Clemson University, Greenville Technical College and Greenville County Schools has earned national recognition from the League for Innovation in the Community College. “Expressway to Tiger Town” identifies, supports and prepares students for a career as an educator, and the accelerated higher education pathway program earned the league’s 2019 Innovation of the […]
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.
Hundreds of students who transfer from South Carolina technical colleges to Clemson University will soon be eligible for scholarships as part of a new program backed by nearly $5 million from the National Science Foundation. The plan calls for more than 300 transfer students to receive $3 million in need-based scholarships over the five-year life of the grant, said Christopher Kitchens, the program’s principal investigator and associate professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at Clemson.
How a patient is treated, what it means to truly provide care for a patient and how interdisciplinary team members work together to care for a patient are all part of the science of caring. This week, nearly 200 researchers and patient care advocates from around the world will gather in Greenville to share and […]
