Our mission is to enhance Clemson’s reputation as a world-class research institution, while promoting a culture of discovery and excellence in a collaborative, diverse, safe and inclusive environment.

The Division operates four core research facilities that offer world-class equipment and highly trained staff. 

  • The Office of Animal Resources, which includes the Godley-Snell Research Center and the Aquatics Animal Research Lab, provides high quality veterinary care programs, professional and technical support, education and training, and technologically advanced facilities and equipment for research and teaching activities.
  • The Clemson University Electron Microscopy Facility houses some of the world’s most advanced scanning and transmission electron microscopes, as well as X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy and Auger Electron Spectroscopy (XPS & AES), and other equipment. The facility is fully equipped with sample prep tools, and has a full-time Hitachi representative on site to ensure equipment is fully functional.
  • The Clemson Light Imaging Facility (CLIF) is a multi-user core facility with a number of advanced light microscopes, including a Leica SP8X Multiphoton spectral confocal microscope, and a suite of Nikon microscopes.
