Rice University wins Prestigious Grants from HHMI

Plans for the sophomores include a laboratory module where pairs of students will be guided in the identification of products of an unknown plant enzyme. Using biotechnological methods, the students would be taught to create genetically modified yeast, which in turn will produce sufficient enzyme for systematic study. This will be followed by structural studies of the products of these target enzymes with the help of gas- chromatography or other equally cutting-edge techniques. Followed by their lab work, the students will be granted an opportunity to work among graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in faculty labs to further their study of the enzymes as well as prepare peer-reviewed publications of their research. This experience could grant the sophomores an opportunity for more extensive projects of faculty research labs.

Professor West’s program "Educating Interdisciplinary Scientists for Bionanotechnology: A Bottom-up Approach," would include four components:

1. A high school summer academy, which would add a research component to the existing Rice program, which is in collaboration with Science Academy of South Texas. Thus students would get an opportunity to experience lab life with a graduate student guide.

2. A new seminar-style course to introduce the concept of the interdisciplinary elements of bionanotechnology to freshman.

3. A biology course for upper-level students in engineering and the physical sciences.

4. A summer internship program available to both Rice and non-Rice engineering and physics students who would like to participate in bionanotechnology research.

According to West these courses would especially benefit undergraduate engineering and science majors at Rice University, interested in biomedical research but with little life science training.
