Institute renamed for Nobel laureate

Abstract:
Rice University's Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology (CNST) has been renamed the Richard E. Smalley Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology. "The Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology has been a driving force at Rice for fostering new research, attracting very gifted faculty, building a better graduate program and making Rice a well-known leader in the world of nanotechnology," Rice President David W. Leebron said. "The carbon molecules known as "buckyballs" that CNST founder Rick Smalley co-discovered formed the foundation for the field of nanotechnology and presaged the dawning of a new era in the physical sciences, giving researchers an unprecedented level of control over materials and promising extraordinary applications in transportation, medicine and energy transmission. Because buckyballs forever changed Rice's international reputation and put the university at the forefront of 21st century science and technology, it is only fitting that the CNST be elevated to the status of an institute whose name pays tribute to Nobel laureate Rick Smalley."
