Rice leads design of 3-D printed materials to learn how tumors proliferate
Testing treatments for bone cancer tumors may get easier with new enhancements to sophisticated support structures that mimic their biological environment, according to Rice University scientists.  (February 8, 2017)

Bacterium from coal mine fire could aid drug targeting
Chemists scouring Appalachia for exotic microorganisms that could yield blockbuster drugs have reported a unique find from the smoldering remains of a coal mine fire that’s burned for nearly a decade in southeastern Kentucky.  (February 6, 2017)

 

Cell-tracking agents get a boostCell-tracking agents get a boost
Rice labs improve bismuth-enhanced nanotubes as an X-ray contrast agent
Rice University researchers have synthesized a new and greatly improved generation of contrast agents for tagging and real-time tracking of stem cells in the body.  (January 30, 2017)

 

Antioxidants get smallAntioxidants get small
Molecular compounds mimic effective graphene agents, show potential for therapies
Treated particles of graphene derived from carbon nanotubes have demonstrated remarkable potential as life-saving antioxidants, but as small as they are, something even smaller had to be created to figure out why they work so well. (January 26, 2017)

 

Boron atoms stretch out, gain new powersBoron atoms stretch out, gain new powers
Rice simulations demonstrate 1-D material’s stiffness, electrical versatility
Hold on, there, graphene. You might think you’re the most interesting new nanomaterial of the century, but boron might already have you beat, according to scientists at Rice University.  (January 26, 2017)

 

Theory lends transparency to how glass breaksTheory lends transparency to how glass breaks
Rice calculations detail forces that morph metallic glass when under stress, show where it may fail
Over time, when a metallic glass is put under stress, its atoms will shift, slide and ultimately form bands that leave the material more prone to breaking. Rice University scientists have developed new computational methods based on a general theory of glasses to explain why.  (January 23, 2017)

Researchers at Rice, Kazan universities develop unique sorbents, target Fukushima accident site
Researchers at Rice University and Kazan Federal University in Russia have found a way to extract radioactivity from water and said their discovery could help purify the hundreds of millions of gallons of contaminated water stored after the Fukushima nuclear plant accident.  (January 19, 2017)

 

Wired’s top words give props to Rice researchWired’s top words give props to Rice research
It may be weird but it’s definitely not wired. That would defeat the purpose of Teslaphoresis, the Rice University-born technique to move and assemble carbon nanotubes wirelessly with a Tesla coil force field.  (January 12, 2017)
