Aerogel catalyst shows promise for fuel cellsAerogel catalyst shows promise for fuel cells
Rice University scientists turn unzipped nanotubes into possible alternative for platinum
Graphene nanoribbons formed into a three-dimensional aerogel and enhanced with boron and nitrogen are excellent catalysts for fuel cells, even in comparison to platinum, according to Rice University researchers. (March 2, 2015)


Motor proteins prefer slow, steady movementMotor proteins prefer slow, steady movement
Rice University researchers find motors collaborate to regulate cell-transport systems
It takes at least two motor proteins to tango, according to Rice University scientists who discovered the workhorses that move cargo in cells are highly sensitive to the proximity of their peers. (February 23, 2015)


Binding bad: Buckyballs offer environmental benefitsBinding bad: Buckyballs offer environmental benefits
In Rice University study, treated carbon-60 molecules remove metals from liquids
Treated buckyballs not only remove valuable but potentially toxic metal particles from water and other liquids, but also reserve them for future use, according to scientists at Rice University.  (February 9, 2015)

How cancer turns good cells to the dark sideHow cancer turns good cells to the dark side
Rice researchers find ‘jagged’ proteins key as tumors hijack cell-signaling process
A new computational study by researchers at the Rice-based Center for Theoretical Biological Physics shows how cancer cells take advantage of the system by which cells communicate with their neighbors as they pass messages to “be like me” or “be not like me.”  (January 26, 2015)
