Immune system is key ally in cyberwar against cancerImmune system is key ally in cyberwar against cancer
Rice University study yields new two-step strategy for weakening cancer
Research by Rice University scientists who are fighting a cyberwar against cancer finds that the immune system may be a clinician’s most powerful ally.  (September 23, 2014)


Nanotubes help healing hearts keep the beatNanotubes help healing hearts keep the beat
Rice University, Texas Children’s Hospital patch for defects enhances electrical connections between cells
Carbon nanotubes serve as bridges that allow electrical signals to pass unhindered through new pediatric heart-defect patches invented at Rice University and Texas Children’s Hospital. (September 23, 2014)


George Phillips named Biophysical Society fellowGeorge Phillips named Biophysical Society fellow
Rice University biochemist George Phillips ’74 has been named a fellow of the Biophysical Society for his fundamental contributions to the science of X-ray crystallography.  (September 18, 2014)


Nanoribbon film keeps glass ice-freeNanoribbon film keeps glass ice-free
Rice University lab refines de-icing film that allows radio frequencies to pass
New work by Rice chemist James Tour and his colleagues could keep glass surfaces from windshields to skyscrapers free of ice and fog while retaining their transparency to radio frequencies (RF). (September 16, 2014)


‘Squid skin’ metamaterials project yields vivid color display‘Squid skin’ metamaterials project yields vivid color display
Rice lab creates RGB color display technology with aluminum nanorods
The quest to create artificial “squid skin” — camouflaging metamaterials that can “see” colors and automatically blend into the background — is one step closer to reality, thanks to a breakthrough color-display technology unveiled this week by Rice University’s Laboratory for Nanophotonics (LANP).  (September 15, 2014)


Rice rolls ‘neat’ nanotube fibersRice rolls ‘neat’ nanotube fibers
Rice University researchers’ acid-free approach leads to strong conductive carbon threads
The very idea of fibers made of carbon nanotubes is neat, but Rice University scientists are making them neat — literally. The single-walled carbon nanotubes in new fibers created at Rice line up like a fistful of uncooked spaghetti through a process designed by chemist Angel Martí and his colleagues.

Phosphorus a promising semiconductorPhosphorus a promising semiconductor
Rice University physicists find 2-D form pays no heed to defects
Defects damage the ideal properties of many two-dimensional materials, like carbon-based graphene. Phosphorus just shrugs. That makes it a promising candidate for nano-electronic applications that require stable properties. (September 8, 2014)


Rice chemist wins rare NSF Special Creativity AwardRice chemist wins rare NSF Special Creativity Award
Grant extension will bolster Zubarev’s effort to produce gold nanorods
Ounce for ounce, gold nanorods that are commercially available cost about 7,000 times more than bulk gold, but that may change, thanks to an award-winning research program in the laboratory of Rice University chemist Eugene Zubarev.  (September 8, 2014)
