Clemson University to come alive for Day of the Dead
Now in its sixth year, the event will light up Carillon Garden next to Bowman Field from 6-9 p.m. Admission is free, and the public is invited.
We are well into October and mid-way through the fall semester. As always at this time of year, we had the opportunity to welcome our alumni back to campus when we celebrated Homecoming. In this issue of the newsletter, we highlight some of their accomplishments as well as those of our current students, faculty and staff.
Our Bioengineering Department is leading a partnership of researchers from Duke University, the University of Essex, the University of Copenhagen and Pompeu Fabra University in addressing the build-up of unwanted marine microbes on the hulls of ships. Supported by a multi-million dollar grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, this research is focusing on developing environmentally friendly communities of natural microbes to address this age-old issue; in addition, it is taking this approach a step further by pioneering techniques to optimize their resilience and sustainability.
This issue also features the accomplishments of several of our recent alumni, one of whom is applying the research she conducted at Clemson to establish a nationwide network of wastewater treatment facilities for monitoring fentanyl and other drugs to improve community health. A team of another four recent graduates won a prestigious award for the technology they developed to monitor urinary tract infections in infants. And current students along with their bioengineering professor and a member of the Clemson Extension Service spent several hours one Saturday picking up debris along Twelve Mile Creek in Central, South Carolina.
In this issue we also highlight our faculty who have been recognized by their professional associations for their research accomplishments and service to their fields and society as a whole. In addition, the College honored seven faculty members for their outstanding teaching, research and service at a reception in their honor earlier this month.
As always, you, our alumni, donors and friends, are a crucial part of our college community, and the accomplishments we celebrate in this issue are only possible because of your support. If you would like to help us continue to have an impact, you can make a donation by clicking the “Make a Gift” button below. I cannot thank you enough for your contributions.
With much appreciation,
Anand K. Gramopadhye, Dean
