Mark Blenner in lab

Dr. Mark Blenner, Assistant Professor of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering, recently received a prestigious Young Investigator Award from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research to study strategies for engineering enzymes for more robust activity in changing and extreme terrestrial environments. The project entitled “Engineering Robust Enzyme Activity Through Fundamental Studies of Extremophile Enzymes” was among 57 awards given out to young scientists and engineers across the country that show exceptional ability and promise for conducting basic research relevant to US Air Force needs. The award funds 3 years of research for $360,000.

Dr. Anthony Guiseppi-Elie was recently featured on a front-page story in the Greenville News. The article highlights his research on developing an implantable biochip that could help save lives in accidents or disasters. The biochip would read lactate levels, which can be up to five times higher than normal when someone is bleeding, which would help determine whether someone’s life is threatened, especially during mass triage situations.

Dr. Mark Thies and Adam Klett

Dr. Mark Thies and graduate student, Adam Klett, along with Daniel High School environmental science teacher, Chuck Conrad, were guest speakers on Clemson’s public radio program “Your Day” on August 27th. During this program, Dr. Thies and Adam explained the research they are currently working on in our department related to clean-burning biofuels. In collaboration with a company called Liquid Lignin and funding by the National Science Foundation, they are developing a way to turn a by-product from paper mills called lignin into a biofuel that burns like coal - but unlike coal, it burns clean. To listen to their radio program, please go to this link: http://www.yourdayradio.com/archives/YDPodcast/YD140827.mp3
