18 Rice students awarded NSF Graduate Research Fellowships

Eighteen current Rice University students (4 graduate students and 1 senior in chemistry) were selected for the 2014 National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). Only 2,000 students across the country were offered this fellowship award from the more than 14,000 applicants. The program recognizes and financially supports outstanding graduate students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) who are pursuing research-based master’s and doctoral degrees at accredited U.S. institutions. Congratulations!

Synthetic collagen promotes natural clottingSynthetic collagen promotes natural clotting
April 9
The material, KOD, mimics natural collagen, a fibrous protein that binds cells together into organs and tissues. It could improve upon commercial sponges or therapies based on naturally derived porcine or bovine-derived collagen now used to aid healing during or after surgery.

Scalable CVD process for making 2-D molybdenum diselenideScalable CVD process for making 2-D molybdenum diselenide
April 7
Nanoengineering researchers at Rice University and Nanyang Technological University in Singapore have unveiled a potentially scalable method for making one-atom-thick layers of molybdenum diselenide — a highly sought semiconductor that is similar to graphene but has better properties for making certain electronic devices like switchable transistors and light-emitting diodes.

 

Study: Black carbon is ancient by the time it reaches seafloorStudy: Black carbon is ancient by the time it reaches seafloor
April 7
A new analysis shows how some black carbon breaks away and hitches a ride to the ocean floor on passing particles. The study by scientists from Rice University, the University of California, Irvine, and the University of South Carolina offers the first detailed analysis of how black carbon gets into deep ocean sediments, as well as an accounting of the types and amounts of black carbon found in those sediments.
