3 renowned scientists recruited for cancer, physics and chemistry research at Rice
Date:5/26/2011

Three of the country's leading researchers in physics and chemistry have been recruited to Rice University, thanks in part to a grant from the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT).

Physicists Herbert Levine and Jos Onuchic and chemist Peter Wolynes, all members of the National Academy of Sciences and currently on the faculty at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), will move their research laboratories to Rice's BioScience Research Collaborative (BRC).

Levine and Onuchic are co-directors of the Center for Theoretical Biological Physics funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) Physics Frontiers Centers program and will bring the core of that center to the BRC in stages over the next two years. In addition to continuing their basic research, they will collaborate with cancer specialists in the Texas Medical Center to apply new concepts from physics to cancer research and treatment.

The recruitment of Levine and Onuchic to Houston was made possible by a $10 million CPRIT grant awarded to Rice. CPRIT was approved by state taxpayers in a 2007 ballot initiative to provide $3 billion to support cancer research in Texas. The program includes grants designed to attract outstanding senior research faculty to academic institutions in Texas. Levine and Onuchic have been nominated as Established Investigators/CPRIT Scholars in Cancer Research, and their appointments are pending approval by CPRIT's Oversight Committee.

"Jos Onuchic, Herbert Levine and Peter Wolynes are unambiguously the best people in their fields," said Rice Provost George McLendon. "To be able to pull off one such hire is very difficult; to do three at once is miraculous. We are truly excited to bring their expertise to the work already under way at Rice's BioScience Research Collaborative, and we've very grateful to CPRIT for the generous support that made these exceptional hires a reality."
