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.
Rice scientists study the dynamics of the immune system’s antimicrobial peptides, which attack and eliminate harmful bacteria. They find peptides that invade bacteria and do their damage from the inside are underrated.
HOUSTON – (Sept. 15, 2021) – The 2021 Annual Energy Summit at Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy will explore the critical issues affecting global energy markets, oil and gas, electricity, renewables and the environment in a virtual conference Sept. 29-30.
HOUSTON – (Sept. 13, 2021) – Cryptocurrency — an estimated $2 trillion market — has created an estimated $1 trillion tax gap and become too big to avoid regulatory oversight, according to a new blog post from an expert at Rice University's Baker Institute for Public Policy.
Climate change in this century will allow one of the world's costliest agricultural pests, the diamondback moth, to both thrive year-round and rapidly evolve resistance to pesticides in large parts of the United States, Europe and China where it previously died each winter, according to a study by U.S. and Chinese researchers.
Researchers have identified a possible “Achilles’ heel” in the frustration of amyloid beta peptides as they dock to the fibrils that form plaques in patients with Alzheimer’s disease.
HOUSTON – (Sept. 13, 2021) – Rice is named one of the nation’s top 20 universities in the 2022 edition of U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Colleges” guidebook.
HOUSTON – (Sept. 13, 2021) – A dozen startups will pitch their clean energy technologies to investors and industry leaders this week as a virtual Demo Day concludes the inaugural class of the Rice Alliance Clean Energy Accelerator.
