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)

 

Nano-antioxidants prove their potentialNano-antioxidants prove their potential
Rice-led study shows how particles quench damaging superoxides
Injectable nanoparticles that could protect an injured person from further damage due to oxidative stress have proven to be astoundingly effective in tests to study their mechanism.  (February 9, 2015)

 

Rice, Shandong form Joint Center for Carbon NanomaterialsRice, Shandong form Joint Center for Carbon Nanomaterials
Scientists from Rice University and Shandong University, China, celebrated the opening of the Joint Center for Carbon Nanomaterials, a collaborative facility to study nanotechnology, on Feb. 1.  (February 2, 2015)

 

Winding borders may enhance grapheneWinding borders may enhance graphene
Rice University theory suggests ‘sinuous’ grain boundries add strength, predictable semiconducting properties
Far from being a defect, a winding thread of odd rings at the border of two sheets of graphene has qualities that may prove valuable to manufacturers, according to Rice University scientists.  (February 2, 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)

 

The latest fashion: Graphene edges can be tailor-madeThe latest fashion: Graphene edges can be tailor-made
Rice University theory shows it should be possible to tune material’s properties
Theoretical physicists at Rice University are living on the edge as they study the astounding properties of graphene. In a new study, they figure out how researchers can fracture graphene nanoribbons to get the edges they need for applications.  (January 23, 2015)

 

Hydrogels deliver on blood-vessel growthHydrogels deliver on blood-vessel growth
Rice researchers introduce improved injectable scaffold to promote healing
Rice chemist Jeffrey Hartgerink, lead author Vivek Kumar and their colleagues have created a new version of the hydrogel that can be injected into an internal wound and help it heal while slowly degrading as it is replaced by natural tissue. (January 20, 2015)
