Geneticist Stephen Kresovich, director of Clemson University’s Advanced Plant Technology program, has been appointed by U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue to the National Genetic Resources Advisory Council to serve as one of six scientific members nationwide.
The Clemson University School of Health Research has appointed ten new faculty scholars from three colleges and four new clinical faculty from Prisma Health. Each year, Clemson University School of Health Research (CUSHR) appoints new faculty scholars and clinical faculty. Faculty Scholars are faculty members who demonstrate a strong record of health research, teaching and […]
Andrew Pyle, an assistant professor in Clemson’s communication department, said that as a student himself, procrastination was his typical mode of approaching his studies and work. However, that all changed once Pyle read Cal Newport’s “Deep Work.” The strategies Newport outlined in the book helped Pyle revolutionize the way he approached his own work. Pyle […]
Clemson – The CAREER program issues grants to early-career faculty who demonstrate intellectual merit and the potential to create broader impacts beyond the lab. The program represents the foundation’s mission to encourage integration of research and education at universities in the U.S. To be eligible for a CAREER award, an applicant must submit an integrative […]
Clemson researchers have found a cover crop mixture that can reduce costs for South Carolina farmers, rejuvenate farm soil and help conserve the state’s water supply if included in crop rotations.
It’s a stressful time to be providing an essential service in the front lines, whether it’s in the medical field, as a first responder or working at a grocery store. With schools and other services being closed to prevent the spread of coronavirus, many parents are scrambling to find somewhere safe for their children to […]
A study by Clemson scientist Matthew Koski suggests that pollen color can evolve independently from flower traits, and that plant species maintain both light and dark pollen because each offers distinct survival advantages.
The Sonoco FRESH initiative at Clemson University has awarded four research grants to professors who are addressing issues regarding food waste. In the U.S. alone, food waste is estimated at 40% across the food chain.
Ilya Safro of Clemson University is working to create algorithms that combine the best of quantum computing and classical computing, a hybrid that could put quantum hardware a step closer to solving real-life problems. No one yet knows whether it will be possible to solve practical problems with quantum computers, a technology that for certain […]
CLEMSON, South Carolina — Scientists believe about 25 percent of the differences in human life span is determined by genetics — with the rest determined by environmental and lifestyle factors. But they don’t yet know all the genes that contribute to a long life. A study published March 5, 2020, in PLoS Biology quantified variation […]
Fadi Abdeljawad of Clemson University is leading new research into a unique class of metallic alloys that show promise for a broad range of applications, including the development of cars and airplanes with improved fuel efficiency. Abdeljawad, a materials scientist and an assistant professor of mechanical engineering, said that he and his team are working […]
A team of College of Science researchers, in collaboration with international colleagues, has reported the first definitive detection of a relativistic jet emerging from two colliding galaxies — in essence, the first photographic proof that merging galaxies can produce jets of charged particles that travel at nearly the speed of light.
A study by a Clemson University researcher and others may soon bring relief to people suffering from celiac disease.
Clemson University College of Science faculty member Kara Powder has received a $1.17 million National Science Foundation CAREER award grant to investigate gene regulatory elements that determine craniofacial development and evolution.
In response to South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster’s executive orders and current knowledge of the COVID-19 pandemic, Clemson Libraries are closed to the public until at least May 8, 2020. However, Clemson Libraries are prepared to continue supporting your digital research needs and providing a comprehensive list of available services and resources during the COVID-19 […]
