Graphene on toast, anyone?Graphene on toast, anyone?
Rice scientists create patterned graphene onto food, paper, cloth, cardboard
The Rice lab of chemist James Tour, which once turned Girl Scout cookies into graphene, is investigating ways to write graphene patterns onto food and other materials to quickly embed conductive identification tags and sensors into the products themselves. (February 13, 2018)


Proteins’ fluorescence a little less mysteriousProteins’ fluorescence a little less mysterious
Rice scientists develop method to test fluorescent biosensors before they’re synthesized
Rice University scientists have effectively quenched a debate over the mechanism behind a fluorescent biosensor that monitors neurons by sensing changes in voltage. (January 24, 2018)


Nanotubes go with the flow to penetrate brain tissueNanotubes go with the flow to penetrate brain tissue
Rice scientists, engineers develop microfluidic devices, microelectrodes for gentle implantation
Rice University researchers have invented a device that uses fast-moving fluids to insert flexible, conductive carbon nanotube fibers into the brain, where they can help record the actions of neurons. (December 19, 2017)


MiNT protein a fresh target to attack diseaseMiNT protein a fresh target to attack disease
Rice, UCSD team produces first structure of protein that balances forces in cells’ mitochondria
A two-faced protein in a chain that regulates iron and other elements in cells could provide a new target to treat cancer, diabetes and other diseases. (December 18, 2017)


A dab of water aids carbon captureA dab of water aids carbon capture
Rice advances asphalt-based filter to sequester greenhouse gas at wellhead
Rice University scientists have found a way to make their asphalt-based sorbents better at capturing carbon dioxide from gas wells: Just add water. (December 11, 2017)


Researchers advance technique to detect ovarian cancerResearchers advance technique to detect ovarian cancer
Rice, MD Anderson use fluorescent carbon nanotube probes to achieve first in vivo success
Researchers at Rice University and the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center have refined and, for the first time, run in vivo tests of a method that may allow nanotube-based probes to locate specific tumors in the body. Their ability to pinpoint tumors with submillimeter accuracy could eventually improve early detection and treatment of ovarian cancer. (November 30, 2017)


Borophene shines alone as 2-D plasmonic materialBorophene shines alone as 2-D plasmonic material
Rice scientists calculate flat boron capable of visible plasmon emissions
An atom-thick film of boron could be the first pure two-dimensional material able to emit visible and near-infrared light by activating its plasmons, according to Rice University scientists. (November 20, 2017)


Rice University scientists named AAAS FellowsRice University scientists named AAAS Fellows
Plant biologist Janet Braam, biophysicist José Onuchic to be honored in February
Rice University professors Janet Braam and José Onuchic have been named fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the world’s largest general scientific society and publisher of the journal Science. (November 20, 2017)
