Clemson Center
for Human Genetics

Our research focuses on genomic, computational and comparative genetic approaches to gain insights in genetic and environmental risk factors for human diseases. We and our medical research collaborators utilize the genetic model organism, Drosophila melanogaster (fruit fly), and the developmental biology model, Danio rerio (zebrafish), human cell lines and patient samples. We integrate high-throughput genome sequencing technologies and analyses of large data sets with advanced computational approaches to acquire broad-based insights in the composition and dynamics of genetic networks that are associated with variation in rare diseases and complex traits in humans, enabling precision medicine.

Eukaryotic Pathogens
Innovation Center

The Eukaryotic Pathogens Innovation Center, known as EPIC, was founded in January 2013. EPIC is an interdisciplinary research cooperative at Clemson University that stands at the forefront of biomedical research on eukaryotic pathogens, which are the causative agents of some of the most devastating and intractable diseases of humans including malaria, amoebic dysentery, sleeping sickness, Chagas disease, and fungal meningitis. The global importance of these pathogens is what motivates our faculty members, who have established a lengthy track record of major contributions in this area of research.

Clemson Nanomaterials Institute

The Clemson Nanomaterials Institute is dedicated to exploring the fundamental properties of nanomaterials and their applications. Electric arcs, lasers, ultrasonication, spark plasma sintering and chemical vapor deposition are used to prepare a wide range of nanomaterials. CNI researchers explore the fundamental physics in nanostructured systems using a wide range of characterization techniques including Raman scattering, atomic force microscopy, electron microscopy, electrical transport measurements, and the electrochemical and harmonic detection of resonance methods.
