The Nov. 19-20 conference focused on narratives around natural catastrophes in the Americas and Circum-Caribbean
Art exhibitions at Moody, MFAH will contextualize research presented Dec. 3-4
Rice University engineers boost the efficiency while retaining the toughness of solar cells made of two-dimensional perovskites.
Rice University engineers are leading the development of a web server to help researchers judge the efficacy of their COVID-19 treatment candidates.
Rice engineers adapt a compound to serve as a universal anticorrosive coating for steel.
Rice University engineers are printing 3D lattices of glass and crystal with sub-200 nanometer resolution. The technique could make it practical to print micro-scale electronic, mechanical and photonic devices.
Rice University chemists find manganese far superior to silver and cerium as a way to make building blocks for drug design and manufacture.
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.
A loose-fitting mask may be doing you no favors if you’re around SARS-CoV-2.
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.
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.
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.
Rice researchers have won an NSF grant to acquire a sophisticated optical tweezer microscope to manipulate, measure and monitor micron-scale particles.
Rice scientists uncover how natural archives can record Atlantic hurricane frequency over the past 1,000 years. SUMMARY: Rice University scientists uncover how natural archives can record Atlantic hurricane frequency over the past 1,000 years. More data is needed to help model how climate change will affect storms in the future.
