A $5.2 million U.S. Army Corps of Engineers grant will expand Rice efforts to recycle waste into valuable products through flash Joule heating.
Rice engineers are developing a noninvasive device to understand how the brain disposes of metabolic waste during sleep.
Rice University’s Gustavo Scuseria wins the American Chemical Society Award in Theoretical Chemistry.
Four institutions will share an NSF grant of nearly $5 million to support scholarships for students seeking master’s degrees in engineering and related fields.
The NSF awards nearly $3 million to the Center for Theoretical Biological Physics to continue its leadership role in the Physics of Living Systems graduate research network.
Scientists have discovered that symbiotic single-celled algae that live inside of and feed corals can reproduce not only by mitosis, but also sexually. Encouraging sex in these algae can accelerate their evolution to produce strains better able to help reefs cope with climate change.
The Moody Foundation has granted Rice $100 million to build a transformative new student center designed by one of the world’s premiere architects and to create endowments supporting student opportunity and success, both as part of the center and in other areas of the university.
HOUSTON – (Sept. 21, 2021) – Time-released drugs are about to get a geometry lesson, thanks to bioengineers at Rice University.
Rice scientists have won a grant to advance the development of custom-designed microbial colonies for a variety of applications.
Rice University engineers improve simulations that analyze gadolinium-based contrast agents used in clinical magnetic resonance imaging. More efficient simulations could help make better compounds for imaging technologies.
Existing treatments for movement impairments are “off the rack” rather than “custom-tailored,” but B.J. Fregly, a Rice University professor of mechanical engineering and bioengineering, wants to change that situation.
