Making vessels leaky on demand could aid drug deliveryMaking vessels leaky on demand could aid drug delivery
Rice scientists use magnets and nanoparticles to open, close gaps in blood vessels
The endothelial cells that line blood vessels are packed tightly to keep blood inside and flowing, but scientists at Rice University and their colleagues have discovered it may be possible to selectively open gaps in those barriers just enough to let large molecules through — and then close them again.  (June 8, 2017)


Rice lab creates tough, but tender, cancer fightersRice lab creates tough, but tender, cancer fighters
Variations of anti-tumor agents prove effective in the lab against even drug-resistant cancers
Rice University scientists have developed and evaluated analogs of potent anti-tumor agents known as epothilones using designs and methods that both improve their biological properties and simplify their manufacture.  (May 30, 2017)


Graphene-nanotube hybrid boosts lithium metal batteriesGraphene-nanotube hybrid boosts lithium metal batteries
Rice prototypes store 3 times the energy of lithium-ion batteries
Rice University scientists have created a rechargeable lithium metal battery with three times the capacity of commercial lithium-ion batteries by resolving something that has long stumped researchers: the dendrite problem.  (May 18, 2017)


Gas gives laser-induced graphene super propertiesGas gives laser-induced graphene super properties
Rice study shows inexpensive material can be superhydrophilic or superhydrophobic
Rice University scientists who invented laser-induced graphene (LIG) for applications like supercapacitors have now figured out a way to make the spongy graphene either superhydrophobic or superhydrophilic.  (May 15, 2017)

Rice’s Gustavo Scuseria wins Royal Society of Chemistry awardRice’s Gustavo Scuseria wins Royal Society of Chemistry award
Rice University chemist Gustavo Scuseria won the 2017 Royal Society of Chemistry S F Boys – A Rahman Award. This biennial award from the London-based international organization for chemical scientists recognizes outstanding innovative research in the area of computational chemistry, including both quantum chemistry and molecular simulations. Scuseria will complete a lecture tour in the U.K. to share his research.  (May 9, 2017)


Biology’s need for speed tolerates a few mistakesBiology’s need for speed tolerates a few mistakes
Rice scientists find DNA, protein production optimizes for speed over accuracy
Biology must be in a hurry. In balancing speed and accuracy to duplicate DNA, produce proteins and carry out other processes, evolution has apparently determined that speed is of higher priority, according to Rice University researchers.  (May 2, 2017)
