Martine LaBerge is one of the newest Fellows in the Biomedical Engineering Society, an honor recognizing her for exceptional achievements and experience in biomedical engineering.
LaBerge is chair of the Department of Bioengineering at Clemson and executive director of the Clemson University Biomedical Engineering Innovation Campus, or CUBEInC, in Greenville.
She is among 165 Fellows in the society, which was founded in 1968 and now has more than 7,000 members.
Eric Muth, associate dean for research and graduate studies in Clemson’s College of Behavioral, Social and Health Sciences, has been named a research leader fellow by the Association of Public Land-Grant Universities (APLU). The fellowship provides training to individuals who aspire to become vice presidents, vice chancellors or vice provosts for research to develop critical new knowledge and skills.
The APLU’s Council on Research named Muth along with only six other rising research leaders across the country for this second cohort of research leader fellows. The fellows, who join eight inaugural fellows selected in 2017, were selected earlier this summer and introduced at the 2018 CoR Summer Meeting in Bozeman, Montana. Of all 15 fellows, Muth is the only associate dean.

Nearly 30 members of the university facilities staff visited the Clemson University Police Department (CUPD) headquarters last week to be recognized for getting the Incident Command Center up and running prior to the start of the home football season. The space has been used as a centralized hub on game days by CUPD, Fire/EMS, Emergency Management, CCIT and several other areas. Associate Vice President for Public Safety and Chief of Police Greg Mullen thanked the group for its efforts in establishing the center back in August, and individually recognized the contributions of each individual from facilities.
