Forbes chooses 3 from Rice for ’30 Under 30′Forbes chooses 3 from Rice for ’30 Under 30′
The New Year is fresh, but Rice University already has reason to celebrate this week after three of its rising young stars were chosen for Forbes magazine's coveted 30 Under 30 in Science and Health Care.  (January 7, 2014)

Mellor-Crummey elected ACM FellowMellor-Crummey elected ACM Fellow
John M. Mellor-Crummey, professor of computer science, and of electrical and computer engineering at Rice University, has been named a Fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) for his  contributions to parallel and high-performance computing.  Mellor-Crummey is one 50 ACM members from universities, corporations and research labs so honored by ACM for 2013.  (December 17, 2013)

Ashutosh Sabharwal, a Rice University professor of electrical and computer engineering and Ken Kennedy Institute member, has been named to the class of newly elevated fellows for 2014 by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) for his contributions to the theory of and experimentation in wireless systems and networks. - See more at: http://news.rice.edu/2013/12/13/sabharwal-named-ieee-fellow/#sthash.YcD7qYqZ.dpuf  (December 17, 2013)

Nano magnets arise at 2-D boundariesNano magnets arise at 2-D boundaries
When you squeeze atoms, you don't get atom juice. You get magnets.  According to a new theory by Rice University scientists, imperfections in certain two-dimensional materials create the conditions by which nanoscale magnetic fields arise.  (November 22, 2013)

K2I Distinguished Lecture: Quantifying Your Superorganism Body Using Big Data Supercomputing, Larry Smarr, PhDK2I Distinguished Lecture: Quantifying Your Superorganism Body Using Big Data Supercomputing", Larry Smarr, PhD
Larry Smarr, Ph.D., began his scientific career as an astrophysicist, studying billions of stars in far-off galaxies. More recently, he's been studying much larger numbers of units closer to home -- his own body.  (November 18, 2013)

Calculations reveal shortcut to characterize zeolitesCalculations reveal shortcut to characterize zeolites
A computational method to quantify the adsorption of gas by porous zeolites should help labs know what to expect before they embark upon slow, costly experiments, according to researchers at Rice University.  (November 15, 2013)

Rice to help bring smallest structures to light Rice to help bring smallest structures to light
Rice University will help probe the structure of ever-smaller molecules as part of a new National Science Foundation (NSF) consortium. The NSF committed $25 million for a Science and Technology Center based at the University at Buffalo to explore the use of strong X-ray lasers to detail the atomic structures of molecules with a resolution approaching the nanoscale.  (November 15, 2013)

By Patrick E. Kurp, Engineering Communications
With the aid of the Ken Kennedy Institute for Information Technology (K2I), 15 graduate students at Rice University have been awarded fellowships for their research and educational achievements in computational science and engineering, and high-performance computing.  (November 13, 2013)

Rice team rises to big-data breast cancer challengeRice team rises to big-data breast cancer challenge
A colorful wheel developed by Rice University bioengineers to visualize protein interactions has won an international competition for novel strategies to study the roots of breast cancer.The winning BioWheel by the Rice lab of bioengineer Amina Qutub was chosen this week, in the middle of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, topping 14 academic and industry participants in the HPN-DREAM Breast Cancer Network Inference Challenge. Qutub has been invited to present the lab's creation at the RECOMB/ISCB conference on Regulatory and Systems Genomics in Toronto next month.  (October 24, 2013)

The End of The American NetworkThe End of The American Network
As details of the U.S. National Security Agency's (NSA) pervasive phone and Internet eavesdropping and surveillance operations emerged last summer, sales of George Orwell's classic novel, 1984, were reported to have risen dramatically. Orwell described an oppressive government that continually monitors the population through ever-present "telescreens." A recent newspaper article proclaimed that "NSA surveillance programs greatly exceed anything the 1984 author could have imagined."  (October 24, 2013)
