Rice University bioengineer Gang Bao, a pioneer in the search for a way to treat and perhaps cure sickle cell disease, is co-author of a significant step forward revealed in Science Translational Medicine and led by his colleagues at Stanford University.
Scientific studies describing the most basic processes often have the greatest impact in the long run. A new work by Rice University engineers could be one such, and it’s a gas, gas, gas for nanomaterials.
Long-term water security is essential for the future of Texas, and the state acutely needs a common law system that can balance world-scale agricultural activity, industrial development and urban growth while also protecting private property rights, according to new research from Rice’s Baker Institute for Public Policy and Texas State University’s The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment.
A recently arrived Rice University professor preparing to study quantum systems assembled from the ground up with individual atoms has two significant papers on which to build his reputation.
New research shows executives doubt the effectiveness of strategy planning, which is conducted by an overwhelming majority of large companies in the United States. That attitude may doom such plans’ successful implementation, the researchers argue.

HOUSTON – (June 7, 2021) – If identical versions of 20 people lived out their lives in dozens of different worlds, would the same people be popular in each world?
A simple chemical process developed at Rice University creates light and highly absorbent aerogels that can take a beating.
It's official: Hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) is the iron man of 2D materials, so resistant to cracking that it defies a century-old theoretical description engineers still use to measure toughness.
A new strategy to reduce the side effects suffered by patients undergoing treatment for head and neck cancers now has the support of the National Institutes of Health.
New research suggests the jiggling motion of carbon nanotubes suspended in liquid solutions could have implications for the structure, processing and properties of nanotube fibers formed from those solutions.
Rice's Moshe Vardi has won the 2021 ACM/AAAI Allen Newell Award for his influential work at the interface of logic and computer science.
SlaveVoyages.org is the result of years of research, reengineered for the future by Rice and a newly formed consortium.
