Mentors

Creative Inquiry Mentors and Students

In 2019, 36 faculty and four graduate students from 13 departments in five of Clemson’s academic colleges and the Watt Family Innovation Center mentored summer students. Their research varied from the bioinformatics of cancer to designing medical devices for developing countries to investigating the stress, burnout rates and resilience in nurses. You can find more information about these mentors in their profiles.
