Smaller is better for nanotube analysis
In a great example of “less is more,” Rice University scientists have developed a powerful method to analyze carbon nanotubes in solution.
Deep-diving whales could hold answer for synthetic blood
The ultra-stable properties of the proteins that allow deep-diving whales to remain active while holding their breath for up to two hours could help Rice biochemist John Olson and his colleagues finish a 20-year quest to create lifesaving synthetic blood for human trauma patients.
Rice announces $150 million in strategic research initiatives
Rice University is preparing to invest over $150 million in strategic initiatives aimed at increasing its research competitiveness, establishing a world-renowned program in data sciences and bolstering its position as one of the leading centers for molecular nanotechnology research.
Science provides new way to peer into pores
Rice University scientists led a project to “see” and measure the space in porous materials, even if that space is too small or fragile for traditional microscopes.
