Rice engineers are part of PATHS-UP, a new center established by the National Science Foundation to develop technologies that help alleviate suffering from diabetes and heart disease in underserved communities in the United States and around the world.
NEST 360, a Rice University-affiliated international team dedicated to ending preventable newborn deaths in Africa, gets a boost as one of its life-saving neonatal technologies wins funding to support clinical validation and initial scale-up.
In their work toward 3-D printing transplantable tissues and organs, bioengineers and scientists from Rice University and Baylor College of Medicine have demonstrated a key step on the path to generate implantable tissues with functioning capillaries.
Nanotechnologists from Rice University and China's Tianjin University have used 3-D laser printing to create centimeter-sized objects of graphene foam, a 3-D version of atomically thin graphene. The research could yield industrially useful quantities of bulk graphene.
