Leadership in the college’s teaching and learning department has recognized one graduate student from each of the M.Ed. program’s three specializations with the award. According to Cynthia […]
With more than 744,000 rural residents statewide, inadequate health care is not just a small-town problem. Rural places represent a health care crisis for all of South Carolina. And a solution is needed.
CLEMSON, South Carolina — More than 1,800 miles thick and sandwiched between the Earth’s surface and its super-hot core, the mantle is made up of hot, iron-rich rock that slowly moves upward to cool. Known as convection, this process of heat transfer causes a cascade of geological events that lead to earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, or […]
Clemson psychology associate professor Marissa Shuffler, Ph.D., is the newest Clemson University School of Health Research (CUSHR) Faculty Fellow. Faculty Fellows are tenured faculty members embedded in a Prisma Health–Upstate department for the spring semester and summer to produce health-related research. Through this program, Faculty Fellows shift their focus from regular teaching duties to a […]
With 2019 coming to a close, we want to take a moment to celebrate the faculty, staff, students, alumni and friends who have made Clemson University such a special place. Whether it’s in the lab, the classroom or on the field, people are the heart of our institution and the reason why Clemson has grown to become an institution recognized for excellence.
SANTEE – Given increased acres and a return to trend yields, agricultural economists say the corn outlook for 2020 is for a potential bumper crop that could drive down market prices while creating huge stockpiles that could take years to reduce. This could create headaches for many. But about 200 farmers who attended Clemson University […]
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.
A group of students from the Graduate Program in Historic Preservation has earned third place in a National Park Service competition. The annual Historic American Landscapes Survey (HALS) Challenge marked its 10th year with the theme of “Historic Streetscapes,” inviting students and others to document the nation’s historically significant streets. The six-member team from the […]
An important part of medical school could soon be upgraded for the digital age, as a group of Clemson University researchers develop the first simulator of its kind to help teach future vascular surgeons how to suture blood vessels. The SutureCoach would come equipped with cameras and sensors to capture a range of data, including how the surgical tool and needle move and the forces the user exerts.
Clemson University’s Wood Utilization + Design Institute (WU+D) recently held its annual event with building industry stakeholders to celebrate 2019 successes and new membership. Hosted at the new Clemson Outdoor Recreation and Education (CORE) facility on Dec. 11, the event featured a ‘mass timber tour’ showcasing CORE’s beautifully exposed mass timber components – namely, two-story […]
Students and technologists across the country will soon have a new and interactive way to learn about manufacturing the light-based technologies that are crucial for a host of next-generation products and services, including high-speed wireless networks.
A critical question in medicine asks how individual variation in DNA can predict variation in health and disease. New research from the Clemson Center for Human Genetics identified hundreds of metabolites that might serve as intermediates to translate variation in the genome to variation in complex traits. Published recently in Genome Research, the findings could one day help doctors better monitor metabolite variation as an indicator for disease.
Griffin Poyck was a young boy the first time he recalled a video game piquing his interest. “My neighbor had a game from the Sonic the Hedgehog series and I was enamored with it,” he said. “I asked my parents about it, got something for Christmas and I’ve been playing ever since.” What began as […]
Researchers at Clemson University and Prisma Health have received funding to collaborate on the development of new medical treatment and diagnostic technologies. Three Clemson-Prisma Health collaborations received investments from the recently created Innovation Maturation Fund, a joint effort between the Health Sciences Center (HSC) at Prisma Health and the Clemson University Division of Research.
CLEMSON — Genetics and biochemistry professor James Morris, a leading expert on the parasite that causes African sleeping sickness, made an important discovery in 2018 that is helping scientists unravel the mysteries surrounding this devastating disease, which infects both humans and livestock, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa. According to Morris, this discovery was made possible, in […]
