Antibodies get easy upgrade with pClick

Bioengineer Han Xiao's lab develops method to quickly enhance immune-system proteins for treatment and research.

A new study by researchers from Rice University’s Mechatronics and Haptic Interfaces Laboratory found users needed less than two hours of training to learn to “feel” most words that were transmitted by a haptic armband that communicates with signals comprised of squeeze, stretch and vibration.

Can you feel what I'm saying?

Marcia O'Malley and MAHI Lab study technology that communicates by touch.

Nanotubes may give the world better batteries

James Tour lab's method quenches lithium metal dendrites in batteries that charge faster, last longer.
