Rice University is one of more than 360 colleges in the U.S. committed to making financial aid offers more transparent.
A battery recycling process developed by Rice scientists can retrieve valuable metals from mixed cathode and anode waste with a yield exceeding 98% in less time than normal using low-concentration acid, reducing both the cost and negative environmental impact.
Rice scientists mapped out the three-dimensional structure of one of the smallest known CRISPR-Cas13 systems then used that knowledge to modify its structure and improve its accuracy.
Rice graduate students Aindrila Pal and Gregory Szypko have won NASA FINESST Awards, merit-based future investigator awards that include three-year grants to conduct research in Earth and space sciences.
To make a gene-editing tool more precise and easier to control, Rice University engineers split it into two pieces that only come back together when a third molecule is added.
Mechanical Engineering’s Daniel Preston, three graduate students and a postdoctoral fellow have won a 2023 Ig Nobel Prize for their “necrobotic” robot arm that incorporated a dead spider.
SCI Summer Research Colloquium awards; Applied physics students study in France
A new material that packs deadly heat for viruses on its outer surface while staying cool on the reverse side could be used to make sustainable, multiuse personal protective equipment. Marquise Bell, a Rice graduate student who is the lead author of the research, was also part of this year’s NextProf Nexus workshop, a national, competitive faculty development program for engineering students from underrepresented groups.
Rice University’s efforts to support mental health and wellness go beyond advocating for individual self-care. The university fosters a culture of community care that enhances mental wellness in classrooms, offices and social settings.
Rice University wrapped up an energetic and lively O-Week 2023 with the annual Welcome Back Day Festival Aug. 19.
Rice University President Reginald DesRoches welcomed new graduate students with a tasty barbecue meal Aug. 15.
Rice U. bioengineers developed a platform that enhances survival and function of probiotics engineered to diagnose inflammatory bowel disease in animals. The technology holds promise for minimally invasive disease monitoring and advanced smart therapeutics.
In a potential boon for quantum computing, Rice physicists have shown that topologically protected quantum states can be entangled with other, highly manipulable quantum states in some electronic materials.
Rice University’s Global Medical Innovation program combines engineering, business and clinical training to help students solve real-world medical needs.
Rice mechanical engineers improved on a 50-year-old idea to create container technology that keeps volatile organic compounds from accumulating on the surfaces of stored nanomaterials.
