Clemson professor receives Menzie Environmental Education Award
Date:12/3/2013

Clemson University professor Stephen Klaine received the Menzie Environmental Education Award from the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry.

Klaine, a professor in the biological sciences department in the College of Agriculture, Forestry and Life Sciences, received the award for his contributions to environmental education by working with a variety of programs that emphasize turning good science into effective policy through public outreach and education. Further, during his career Klaine has mentored 35 Ph.D. graduates in his laboratory.

Locally, his collaboration with Upstate Forever, a nonprofit organization supporting sustainable growth and environmental conservation in South Carolina, and with Clemson Changing Land Use and the Environment, a U.S. Department of Agriculture grantee, has focused on demystifying science for farmers, citizens and municipal officers.

He was appointed to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act Science Advisory Committee, underscoring his ability to translate science for policymakers.

Internationally, Klaine has traveled extensively as a Sigma Xi National lecturer and is an active collaborator in the joint Masters of Science program in environmental toxicology between Clemson and Hanoi University of Science.

His research focuses on the fate and effects of contaminants in the environment. In 2007, Klaine was awarded Sigma Xi Research of the Year. He also was awarded the Clemson University Alumni Award for Outstanding Achievement in Research in 2009.

Klaine joined the Clemson University faculty in 1991 after serving as an associate professor in the biology department and director of the Environmental Health and Toxicological Research Institute and Coordinator of Toxicology Program at Memphis State University. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Cincinnati and his master's and Ph.D. in environmental science from Rice University. Klaine is director of the Clemson University Institute of Environmental Toxicology.
