Richard Baraniuk has been awarded the Harold W. McGraw, Jr. Prize in Education.
Rice engineers are developing a noninvasive device to understand how the brain disposes of metabolic waste during sleep.
Carbon nanotubes woven into thread-like fibers and sewn into fabrics become a thermoelectric generator that can turn heat from the sun or other sources into energy.
A project led by Rice University data scientists will attempt to define "social networks" in microbiomes, starting with microbial mats that thrive in Yellowstone Park's hot springs.
Researchers identify redundant neural networks in jellyfish-like, freshwater hydra. The work is a step toward modeling how internal states and external stimuli shape the behavior of an organism with a highly dynamic neural architecture.

A $1 million Keck Foundation grant will support work by Jacob Robinson to understand neural pathways.
HOUSTON – (May 25, 2021) – Sometimes things are a little out of whack, and it turns out to be exactly what you need.
Computer scientist Lydia Kavraki of Rice University’s Brown School of Engineering has won a prestigious National Institutes of Health U01 grant to develop a new approach to model and analyze protein-ligand interactions in cancer research.
Rice engineers' wireless implants now allow for multiple stimulators to be programmed and magnetically powered from a single transmitter.
A student project to predict the need for maintenance in natural gas compressors and avoid unexpected shutdowns has won this year’s Data to Knowledge Lab Showcase.
People who compulsively pull their hair – suffering from an affliction known as trichotillomania – could find relief with a device created by Rice University students.
In one of the first studies of its kind, medical and engineering researchers have shown wearable devices that continuously monitor blood sugar provide new insights into the progression of Type 2 diabetes among at-risk Hispanic/Latino adults.
